33.4.4 (LE1)(M M M M) (LE1)
Entry Level Limited Function Alternate Training Requirements
This standard refers to training for employee classifications performing limited law enforcement duties. Agencies using only fully trained sworn officers do not need to comply with this standard. Job tasks may include but are not limited to Community Interaction; Introduction to Basic Law; Post Crime Considerations; Introduction to Traffic; Field Activities; Use of Force; Firearms Training; Self-Defense Tactics; Less-Lethal Force Training; Criminal Arrest Procedures; Criminal Law; Constitutional Law and Court Cases; Search and Seizure; First Aid for Criminal Justice Officers; Law Enforcement Vehicle Operations; Personnel; and any other related task.
The Detailed Job
Task Analysis should also identify that the classification is prohibited from performing any law enforcement related duty for which specific training has not been provided. Any function performed by a classification of employee for a specific type of law enforcement function must be the equivalent of that provided to any full-time sworn law enforcement officer. Agencies choosing to opt out of a full entry level training program must have a job analysis and classification for each function performing sworn law enforcement duties and provide required training for that classification.
