Act 235 Evaluation:
The Lethal Weapons Training Act 235 provides certification to privately employed agents to carry a lethal weapon. A lethal weapon is any firearm, device, instrument, material, or any other substance that is capable of bringing about great bodily harm or death. The Lethal Weapons Training Act incorporates education and training as part of being a certified agent.
Act 120 Evaluation:
Under Pennsylvania ACT 120, any person employed as a municipal police officer in the Commonwealth is required to have successfully completed a 785.5 hour course of instruction, required by the Municipal Police Officer's Education Training Commission, covering all areas of police work. A requirement is a psychological evaluation. We have a qualified licensed psychologist available to provide the evaluation.
If an employee subject to the Department of Transportation (DOT) Drug & Alcohol rules, violates any rules (e.g. test positive, refuse to test, etc.) Your employer is required to immediately remove you from performing safety-sensitive functions. You will not be permitted to return to DOT regulated safety-sensitive functions until you have done the following:
Undergone an evaluation by a Substance Abuse Professional (SAP). Your employer must provide you with a list of SAPs that you can use
Successfully completed any course, counseling or treatment prescribed by the SAP prior to returning to service
Undergone a follow up evaluation by the same SAP to determine your compliance with their recommendations; AND
Provided a breath and/or urine specimen that tests negative for drugs and/or alcohol prior to returning to DOT regulated safety-sensitive functions.
You will also be subject to unannounced "Follow-Up" testing for drugs and/or alcohol for at least 6 times during the first 12 months of active service with the possibility of unannounced testing for up to 60 months (as prescribed by the SAP). The Return-to-Duty and Follow-Up drug tests will be conducted under direct observation.
