Explanation

BACKGROUND: It is necessary to appropriate $502,842.00 from the unappropriated balance of the Special Revenue Fund, entitled the Police Continuing Professional Training Fund. This appropriation will be used by the Division of Police for officers to attend training seminars and instructor development.

In 2007, Ohio Senate Bill 281 was signed into law, thereby enacting a mandatory continuing professional training program for Ohio peace officers. These training requirements can be found in the Ohio Revised Code 109.802. Ordinance No. 0087-2008, passed on February 4, 2008, authorized the Public Safety Director to participate in the state-funded continuing professional training reimbursement program. The Division of Police complied with this mandate and has received consistent reimbursements dating back to 2008. Reimbursement for 2016 mandated hours amounted to a deposit of $407,880.00 in 2016. State law mandates that these funds be kept in a separate account and be used only to pay the costs of Continuing Professional Training programs.
