  • Out of state laterals?

    What departments are currently interested in out of state laterals? Thanks.

    This Department is always interested in out of state laterals. Since our jurisdiction includes our neighbor Fort Bragg, we get a few laterals when their spouse is transferred here. Below are the NC Standards Division's guidelines for out-of-state lateral transfer.

    Out-of-state transferees will be evaluated to determine the amount and quality of their training and experience. At a minimum, out-of-state candidates must have two years of full-time, sworn law enforcement experience and have successfully completed a basic law enforcement training course accredited by the state from which they are transferring in order to be considered for transfer to a North Carolina law enforcement agency. Out-of-state transferees cannot have a break in service exceeding one year.

    Prior to employment as a certified law enforcement officer in North Carolina, out-of-state transferees must successfully complete the employing agency's in-service firearms training and qualification program. They must also complete the Legal Unit (minimum of 96 hours) of the Commission-accredited BLET and successfully pass the entire state comprehensive examination within their 12-month probationary period.

    Persons who have completed training as a federal law enforcement officer or a military police officer will be required to complete the Commission-accredited BLET in its entirety and successfully pass the state comprehensive examination prior to employment.

    That breaks down to a lateral getting qualified with their newly assigned weapon, then going out with a FTO. We will bring the Officer off the road when the Academy hits the legal block. Then again for the review prior to the state exam. We've always had success with that system.

      CMPD has started a new program for out-of-state laterals, from what I understand. Two years too late *rolleyes*.

          Yeah we've started smaller, lateral-only classes and I'll have to dig back through my emails but there was mention of a few out-of-staters.

            My unofficial historian is a retired FPD Training Sergeant. He's at the training center today. He still does most of our lateral training. He stated that we began taking out-of-state laterals in 1986 or 1987.

            I never considered the issue since we have had out-of-state laterals since I have been here. We recently hired a lateral from TN. I expect a lateral from MO for testing on Thursday. Most of our laterals are related to our neighbor, Fort Bragg.

            The lateral's previous experience make then an asset to the Department. Often they bring addtional skills and a fresh insight to problems.

                    If it has been 7 months since you served as a LEO in NC; the short answer is that your NC certification is good for 1 year. In this Department we would have the person take a medical exam, qualify with assigned weapon, once the paperwork had been filed with the Standards Division, the person would be assigned to a FTO. Since we would not be required to send the person to our Academy they would be hired at the year step based on LE experience. The following are the Standard's Divisions guidelines:

                    A law enforcement officer with general certification may transfer from one law enforcement agency in North Carolina to another law enforcement agency in the state, provided he or she has less than a 12-month break in service.

                    Prior to employment, the hiring agency must:

                    Verify the certification of the officer with the Standards Division.

                    Submit an up-to-date fingerprint check.

                    Advise the officer that he or she will have to complete a one-year probationary period with the agency.

                    Submit a Report of Appointment to the Standards Division.

                    Prior to transfer of certification, the officer must:

                    Complete a Medical History Statement within one year prior to transfer.

                    Submit to a medical examination by a physician licensed in the state of North Carolina within one year prior to the transfer, and submit the results to the employing agency.

                    Submit verification of negative drug screen results.

                    If the on-duty and off-duty weapons are the same at the new agency as they were at the old agency, the officer should submit a copy of the in-service firearms training report form to the new agency, provided that the results are dated within one year prior to the transfer or, the officer must satisfactorily complete the employing agency's in-service firearms training program.

                    An officer holding probationary certification may not laterally transfer from one law enforcement agency to another. The probationary period must be completed in its entirety at the same agency. If an officer terminates employment with one agency before his or her year is up, they must start a new probationary period at the new agency.

                      North Carolina Justice Academy website has information on out of state laterals and a few listings of the departments who do them.
