Amendment to POST Council Regulations
Inclusion of the Regulatory Language to the Requirements of
National Cooper Physical Fitness Standards Eliminated for
Connecticut Certified Police Officer
On December 4, 2012, the Connecticut Legislative Regulation Review Committee
approved an amendment
to the Police Officer Standards and Training Council (POST
Council) regulations codified under Section 7-294e, specifically
7 -294e-2, which now
conforms to Public Act I l-251 (effective October l, 2011) by eliminating the basic
requirements for any person seeking a lateral transfer from one Connecticul
department to another and waives the previous
two year certification requirement. Once
an offioer achieves police officer certification, he or she is eligible for
a lateral transfer.
In addition, effective December 4, 2012, the physical fitness testing standard (POST
adopted the National Cooper Institute physical fitness standards) is eliminated
for lateral police officer transfers.
The amended POST Council regulations will be posted in the Connecticut Law Journal as
well as the POST Council website
in the near fulure.

GENERAL NOTICE 01-05
Law Enforcement Officers
T. William Knapp
Date: October 12, 2001
Subject: Revised Entry-Level
Standards New Hire, Lateral Entry and Comparative Certification
The Police Officer Standards and Training Council has
revised its Regulations of State Agencies, in particular, 7-294e-1, 7-294e-2 and 7-294e-16(j) as required by statute. These
revisions were completed, reviewed and passed into law on September 17, 2001. The Regulations have been posted on our website
(www.post.state.ct.us) for your review. If you do not have access to our website, you may write to our agency and request a copy. In general the
changes made were to clearly define the definitions in 7-294e-1 (a) (1, 2, 3 and 4) plus establishing the requirements for
Lateral Transfers and Certificate of Comparative Compliance.
Section 7-294e-2. Eligibility for Lateral Certification
or Comparative Certification.
(a) A candidate for lateral certification to a position as a police officer in any law
enforcement unit within the state shall meet all council entry level requirements. The candidate shall also satisfactorily
complete a council approved police basic training program, except when the last appointment to a similar position was:
(1) Within the state of Connecticut, and
(2) Followed by at least two years of continuous service as a certified police
(3) Interrupted by not more than two years' absence from the law enforcement unit where last appointed.
In unusual cases, a request for waiver of the requirement of mandatory training may be forwarded by the chief law enforcement
officer of the law enforcement unit concerned, to the council, giving all pertinent information.
(b) A candidate
for comparative certification to a position as a police officer in any law enforcement unit within the state shall satisfactorily
meet all council entry level requirements. The candidate shall also complete a council approved police basic training
program, except when the last appointment to a similar position was:
(1) Followed by at least two years of continuous
service as a certified police officer, and
(2) Interrupted by not more than two years' absence from the law enforcement
unit where last appointed, and
(3) The applicant passes an examination or evaluation as required by the council.
(c) A candidate for comparative certification or lateral certification to any position other than that of an
entry level police officer position shall not be required by the council to meet entry level standards in subsections (e)
and (n) of the regulations of Connecticut state agencies.
1. As you can see by the regulation
above, a person who is hired by an agency (Probationary Candidate), put through the Academy and the Field Training Program
cannot do a lateral transfer to another agency for two years after obtaining certification. If another agency should hire
the individual, then it would require the new agency to return the individual to the academy and through another 400-hour
FTO program. (This can be waived in unusual cases (lay-off, department disband, etc.).
2. When a person is hired
on a lateral transfer to another agency for an entry level position, the individual must meet all entry level standards (7-294e-16)
including the physical fitness (n) requirement at the 40% level. The POST Council staff must perform this test at the Connecticut
Police Academy, by appointment, prior to hiring. This is a free service with no cost to the agency.
3. An individual
who is to be hired under a Certificate of Comparative Compliance must meet all entry level requirements(7-294e-16) including
the physical fitness (n) requirement at the 40% level. The POST Council staff must perform this test at the Connecticut Police
Academy, by appointment, prior to hiring. This is a free service with no cost to the agency.
4. A person hired for a
Certificate of Comparative Compliance or Lateral entry to a position other than that of entry level police officer position
can apply for a waiver of entry level requirements (e) and (n).
5. The modification to 7-294e-16(j) was for clarification
of who can do psychological examinations.
6.A new "ENTRY REQUIREMENT FOR APPOINTMENT - NEW / LATERAL / COMPARATIVE"
form has been enclosed in the notice for your use. All old forms will not be accepted after mailing of this notice.
these regulations became effective September 17, 2001, individuals who were in the process of a comparative certification
or a lateral entry after completing the requirement of years can complete the process. Notice should have been given to the
Certification Unit prior to October 23, 2001. If there are any questions, please contact Gary Pfeifer, Compliance Officer
at (203) 238-6694 during normal business hours.
