to modification or implementation schemes developed by the County
Prosecutor. Prior to enacting any of these provisions within your
agency, you should contact your County Prosecutor for any features
that may be unique to your county.
The enclosed guidelines and directives are identical in content
to those originally issued. Formatting and spacing have been changed
to achieve uniform appearance.
Appendices were included when they were important to the meaning
of the directive. Such is the case with the Semi-Annual Firearms
Qualification and Requalification Standards. Appendices were omitted
when they did not modify or add to the content of the directive,
such as the Internal Affairs Policy and Procedures in which the
appendices were reference materials and sample forms.
The same is true of cover letters. The letters have been included
in this document if they add information to the guideline or provide
specific instructions not included in the text of the guideline.
Otherwise they have not been included.
