State Police Staffing Standards
|Public Act 12-1, Sec. 243 (June 12 SS) required PRI to develop recommended standards for use by the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP) commissioner in determining the proposed level of staffing for the Division of State Police for the 2014-2015 biennial budget. The study examined various factors required by P.A. 12-1 in developing such standards, as well as other relevant information identified during the study.
The PRI study requirement was effective immediately upon passage of P.A. 12-1 (JSS), on June 15, 2012. An informational public hearing on the study topic was held on September 25, 2012. The committee submitted an interim report to the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Security in January 2013.
PRI staff presented the final staff draft report for the study on March 5, 2013, at which meeting the committee took no action. The committee held an informational forum on May 3, 2013, to gather further feedback on the draft report, to which were invited the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection commissioner and state police officials, and Connecticut State Police Union representatives. On June 7, 2013, the committee adopted the final report for the State Police Staffing Standards, which included next steps for DESPP to implement.
