MICHIGAN JUSTICE TRAINING COMMISSION (EXCERPT)
Act 302 of 1982

18.423 Duties of commission; assistance.

Sec. 3.

The commission shall do all of the following, with the assistance of the department of management and budget:

(a) Annually distribute 60% of the fund to eligible entities not including the money in the fund pursuant to section 5(2). An eligible entity receiving a distribution under this subdivision shall expend the distribution only for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers. An eligible entity that uses money received under this subdivision shall maintain detailed records of the actual costs associated with the preparation for, the administration of, and the actual conducting of the training program. Use of money received under this subdivision for the payment of unreasonable or duplicative costs, as determined by the commission, shall result in the forfeiture of the money received by the eligible entity under this subdivision. Money distributed to an eligible entity which is not expended in the fiscal year of the distribution shall only be expended by the eligible entity for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers in future fiscal years. An eligible entity receiving a distribution pursuant to this subdivision shall use the entire distribution for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers within 2 years after receiving the distribution. If the eligible entity fails or refuses to use the entire distribution for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers within 2 years after receiving the distribution, the eligible entity shall not be eligible to receive additional distributions pursuant to this subdivision until the prior distribution is used for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers. A distribution made under this subdivision shall serve as a supplement to, and not as a replacement for, the funds budgeted on October 12, 1982, by an eligible entity for the in-service criminal justice training of its police officers. The distribution shall be made in 2 semiannual installments on dates determined by the commission and shall be expended only for the direct costs of the in-service criminal justice training of police officers. The funds shall be distributed on a per capita basis to eligible entities based upon the number of full-time equated sworn MLEOTC certified police officers employed. Each eligible entity shall receive a minimum distribution of $500.00. For purposes of this subdivision, the number of full-time equated sworn MLEOTC certified police officers shall be determined by dividing the total number of paid work hours actually worked by sworn MLEOTC certified police officers in the eligible entity's fiscal year by 2,080 hours, rounded down to the nearest whole number. For each year, the percentage of police officers who provide direct police service receiving training under this act shall be equal to or greater than the percentage of police officers who are in full-time administrative positions receiving training under this act.

(b) Annually distribute through a competitive grant process the balance of the fund after making the distributions required in subdivisions (a) and (d) and the expenditures required under section 2(3). In distributing money from the fund, the commission shall consider the quality and cost effectiveness of the training programs of applicants for funds and the criminal justice needs of this state. Money shall not be distributed under this subdivision to a professional association. In distributing money from the fund, the commission shall attempt to provide equity in funding for training programs for prosecutors and assigned criminal defense counsel. A state or local agency that uses money received under this subdivision shall maintain detailed records of the actual costs associated with the preparation for, the administration of, and the actual conducting of the training program. Use of money received under this subdivision for the payment of unreasonable or duplicative costs, as determined by the auditor general or the commission, shall result in the forfeiture of the money received by the state or local agency under this subdivision. Grants under this subdivision shall be distributed only to the following:

(i) State or local agencies for the purpose of providing in-service criminal justice training programs to employees of those state or local agencies. A distribution made under this subparagraph shall serve as a supplement to, and not as a replacement for, the funds budgeted on October 12, 1982, by a state or local agency for in-service criminal justice training.

(ii) State or local agencies providing criminal justice training to the employees or the contractual service providers of other state or local agencies. A distribution made under this subparagraph shall be used to enhance and increase, but not supplant, the amount of local, federal, and other state funds that, in the absence of money from the Michigan justice training fund, are available for criminal justice training. As used in this subparagraph, “criminal justice training” means training which is designed and intended to enhance the direct delivery of criminal justice services by employees of state or local agencies; which is not required minimum basic training for police officers or initial training for other employees; and which is any of the following:

(A) A criminal justice educational program presented by the state or local agency or by a contractual training provider hired by the agency.

(B) A criminal justice course or package of instruction provided to an eligible trainee for the payment of a fee or tuition.

(C) Self-education presented through the use of audio-visual materials.

(c) Promulgate rules pursuant to the administrative procedures act of 1969, Act No. 306 of the Public Acts of 1969, as amended, being sections 24.201 to 24.328 of the Michigan Compiled Laws, which prescribe the procedures by which the commission shall distribute money from the fund.

(d) Annually distribute an amount from the fund to the department of management and budget to cover the reasonable expenses of providing staff services to the commission, and to cover the expense of maintaining a register of available criminal justice training programs in this state.
