      503 KAR 1:130.

Review of council and school decisions; appeal to circuit court.

 

      RELATES TO: KRS

15.330

      STATUTORY

AUTHORITY: KRS 15A.160

      NECESSITY,

FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: KRS 15.330 authorizes the Kentucky Law Enforcement

Council to prescribe standards for law enforcement training conducted by

certified schools. 503 KAR Chapter 1 prescribes such standards. Decisions by

the council and by certified schools involving the interpretation of the

statute and the administrative regulations obviously affect persons. A person

adversely affected by such a decision should have the right to have it reviewed

by higher authority. This administrative regulation establishes a procedure for

administrative review and appeal to the court system.

 

      Section 1.

Administrative Review. A person adversely affected by a decision of the council

or a certified school as to enforcement of standards or procedures prescribed

by KRS 15.330 and/or 503 KAR Chapter 1 shall have the right to ask the

secretary to review the decision. A request for a hearing shall be filed in

writing with the secretary within thirty (30) days of receipt of written

notification of the council or school decision. The secretary shall, within

thirty (30) days of receipt of the request, decide if the request merits a

hearing. If it is determined there are insufficient grounds for a hearing, the

secretary shall notify the person in writing that the request has been denied.

If a hearing is to be held, the secretary shall designate the time and place.

The hearing shall be held within ninety (90) days of receipt of the request for

a hearing, and it shall be conducted by the secretary or his designated hearing

officer. If a hearing officer conducts the hearing, he shall submit findings of

fact, conclusions of law and a recommended decision to the secretary. At the

hearing, all parties to the controversy shall have the right to be heard

publicly and to be represented by counsel, and all testimony shall be recorded.

Technical rules of evidence shall not apply at the hearing. Within sixty (60)

days following the hearing, the secretary shall issue a written opinion, a copy

of which shall be provided to all parties and to the fund administrator. The

decision of the secretary shall be final unless appealed into the court system.

 

      Section 2.

Appeal to Circuit Court. A person adversely affected by the decision of the

secretary resulting from a hearing provided for in Section 1 of this

administrative regulation, or by the secretary's decision to deny a request for

such a hearing, shall have the right to appeal the secretary's decision to the

circuit court of the county where the controversy originated. (11 Ky.R. 1544;

eff. 5-14-85.)
