2400 Board of Examiners of Constables
24 DE Admin. Code 2400
Notice is hereby given that the Board of Examiners of Constables, in accordance with 10 Del.C. Ch. 27 proposes to amend/adopt Rules: 4.0 – Badges & Vehicle Markings – requires all badges and vehicle markings to be approved by the Board; and 9.0 – Minimum Training Standards & In-Service Training – clarifies the requirements for the training standards and continuing education through in-service. If you wish to view these amendments/adoptions, contact Ms. Peggy Anderson at 302-672-5304. Any persons wishing to present views may submit them in writing, by December 1, 2015, to Delaware State Police, Professional Licensing, P.O. Box 430, Dover, DE 19903. The Board will hold the annual meeting on Thursday, December 10, 2015, Tatnall Building, 150 Martin L. King, Jr. Boulevard South, Room 112, Dover, DE.
2.2 The Director of the Professional Licensing Section may issue an emergency suspension of any individual issued a commission, under 10 Del.C. Ch. 27, who has been arrested where that arrest could result in the conviction of any misdemeanor or felony that violates the Chapter or the promulgated Rules and Regulations.
4.0 Reserved Badges and Vehicle Markings
4.1 All persons licensed under 10 Del.C. Ch. 27 shall wear or display any uniform, patch, badge, seal, vehicle and the markings, letterhead, business card, advertisement, or other form of publication unless first approved by the Board of Examiners.
4.4 All persons licensed under 10 Del.C. Ch. 27 shall wear or display their assigned badge visibly on the outermost garment.
4.5.1 No vehicle utilized for purposes covered by 10 Del.C. Ch. 27 shall have an appearance that creates a reasonable likelihood of confusion with a police vehicle used by the Delaware State Police or a law enforcement agency of any state or governmental subdivision. The Board of Examiners shall have discretion to review the appearance of vehicles, and to make comparisons with known law enforcement vehicles, in order to enforce this Rule.
5.1 No person licensed under 10 Del.C. §2703 shall carry a firearm unless that person has first passed an approved firearms course of instruction and an initial qualification administered by a Board approved certified firearms instructor. The course of instruction shall include a minimum 40 hours of training. The Professional Licensing Section may waive the 40 hour training requirement depending upon the applicant's professional credentials, training and/or work experience (i.e. prior law enforcement).
9.3.2 Failure to complete the in-service training every year shall be grounds for suspension or revocation of a current commission. Any commissioned individual not obtaining the in-service training for a given year by the last class offered shall be placed on emergency suspension immediately. Any training missed, or not completed, by a commissioned individual must be completed before the emergency suspension may be administratively lifted. On-line training must be made up on-line and classroom instruction must be made up in person in the classroom. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board may consider extenuating circumstances for reinstatement at its discretion.
