Readmission to corrections academies.

No person may be readmitted to any corrections training academy except as provided in this section.
(1) Any request for readmission to any academy shall be made and submitted by the individual's employing or sponsoring agency chief executive officer, or designee.
(2) Any individual terminated from any academy for academic failure, skills deficiency or who has voluntarily withdrawn from any academy for any reason, may be readmitted to a subsequent academy session only if:
(a) The head of the individual's current employing agency, or designee, submits to the commission a written request for readmission of the individual to the academy program, and
(b) The executive director of the commission, or designee, is satisfied that any conditions to the individual's readmission previously specified by the agency director or designee have been met.
(3) Any individual dismissed from any academy for disciplinary reasons other than those specified by section (4), below, may be readmitted to a subsequent academy program only if:
(a) The head of the individual's current employing agency, or designee, submits to the commission a written request for readmission, and
(b) The executive director of the commission, or designee, is satisfied that any conditions to the individual's readmission previously specified by the director or designee have been met, and determines there no longer exists "good cause" to exclude the individual from the academy program.
(4) Any person dismissed from any academy for an integrity violation, including but not limited to cheating, the making of materially false statements, or the commission of a crime shall not be eligible for readmission to any subsequent academy within twenty-four months from the date of dismissal. Such ineligibility shall not be affected by any new employment or reemployment during the period of ineligibility specified in the preceding sentence of this subsection.
(5) An exception to the ineligibility period specified in subsection (4) may be granted at the sole discretion of the commission executive director or designee, based upon mitigating circumstances. However, no person may be considered for such early readmission after an integrity violation dismissal unless a written request is made by the head of the agency employing the individual at the time of the request. Such request may be granted by the executive director upon hearing the matter in a proceeding conducted in accordance with the applicable procedures of the commission. The executive director's decision under this subsection shall be subject to further review only for abuse of discretion.
(6) After the ineligibility period specified in subsection (4) has passed, or after an exception thereto has been granted by the commission under subsection (5), the person previously dismissed for an integrity violation may be readmitted to a subsequent academy session only if:
(a) The head of the individual's current employing agency submits to the commission a written request for readmission, and
(b) The executive director of the commission, or designee, is satisfied that any conditions to the individual's readmission specified by the agency director or designee have been met, and determines there no longer exists "good cause" to exclude the individual from the academy program.
(7) Any and all information deemed to be relevant to the eligibility for readmission under this section of any law enforcement or corrections trainee or prospective trainee may be disseminated without restriction between the commission staff and any employer or prospective employer.
(8) For purposes of this section, reserves and volunteers will be deemed to be employees of the agencies which sponsor them for participation in a training academy.
