6VAC20-270-90. Recertification Requirements.

A. Applications for recertification must be received by the department prior to certification expiration. It is the responsibility of the campus security officer employer to ensure recertification applications are filed with the department. A valid certification as a campus security officer is required in order to remain eligible for employment as a campus security officer. If the campus security officer has met the required in-service training requirements and the required in-service training documents and recertification application are on file with the department prior to expiration, the campus security officer is deemed recertified and may continue to operate in the campus security officer capacity.

B. Applicants for recertification must have completed 16 hours of in-service training during each two-year period after initial certification. The in-service training must be directly related to the duties of the campus security officer, to include a legal update and other relevant topics approved by the department.

C. Individuals whose certification is expired shall comply with the compulsory minimum entry-level training and certification standards set forth in this chapter.

D. The department, subject to its discretion, retains the right to grant an extension of the recertification time limit and requirements under the following conditions:

1. Illness or injury;

2. Military service;

3. Administrative leave, full-time educational leave, or suspension pending investigation or adjudication of a crime; or

4. Any other reasonable situation documented by the employing college, university, or PSS business.

E. Request for extensions shall:

1. Be submitted in writing and signed by the designated campus security point of contact for the employing college, university, or PSS business prior to the expiration date of the time limit for completion of the requirement; and

2. Indicate the projected date for the completion of the requirement.
