NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
Under the provisions of M.G.L. c. 30A, the Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission (“POST Commission”) will conduct a public hearing for the purposes of gathering comments, ideas, and information concerning new regulations governing the processes and standards for the recertification of law enforcement officers.
Summary of Proposed Regulation: With the signing of “An Act relative to justice, equity and accountability in law enforcement in the Commonwealth,” by the Governor on December 31, 2020, the Commonwealth took a major step forward in establishing a centralized and uniform system of holding all law enforcement officers in the Commonwealth accountable to the citizens of the Commonwealth.
The new law requires the POST Commission to recertify law enforcement officers prior to the expiration of their current certification. These regulations seek to establish standards and procedures for the recertification of law enforcement officers. The POST Commission proposes promulgating this regulation 555 CMR 7.0 Recertification regulations (adopted June 8, 2022).
