About Certification Hearings

Under RCW 43.101.155, if the Commission determines, upon investigation, that there is probable cause to believe that a peace officer's certification should be denied or revoked, the Commission will prepare and serve upon the officer a statement of charges. The statement of charges will be accompanied by a notice that to receive a hearing on the denial or revocation, the officer must request a hearing before the hearings board within sixty days of communication of the statement of charges.  Failure of the officer to request a hearing within the sixty-day period constitutes a default, whereupon the commission may enter an order.

These hearings are open to the public. 

There are certain circumstances under which a peace officer, who has had their certification revoked or denied, may apply to have their certification reinstated.
