of, and under the authority of, the sheriff, except in counties in
which the sheriff, as of July 1, 1993, is not in charge of and the
sole and exclusive authority to keep the county jail and the

Training, or a custodial officer who has completed the training
required in this section.
   (d) At any time 20 or more custodial officers are on duty, there
shall be at least one peace officer, as described in Section 830.1,
on duty at the same time to supervise the performance of the
custodial officers.
   (e) This section shall not be construed to confer any authority
upon any custodial officer except while on duty.

in supervised activities.
   These duties may be performed at the Santa Clara Valley Medical
Center as needed and only as they directly relate to guarding

construed to authorize the performance of any law enforcement
activity involving any person other than the inmate or his or her
visitors.
   (h) Nothing in this section shall authorize a custodial officer to
carry or possess a firearm when the officer is not on duty.
   (i) It is the intent of the Legislature that this section, as it
relates to Santa Clara County, enumerate specific duties of custodial
officers (known as "correctional officers" in Santa Clara County)
and to clarify the relationships of the correctional officers and
deputy sheriffs in Santa Clara County.  These duties are the same
duties of the custodial officers prior to the date of enactment of
Senate Bill 1019 of the 1999-2000 Regular Session of the Legislature
pursuant to local rules and judicial decisions.  It is further the
intent of the Legislature that all issues regarding compensation for
custodial officers remain subject to the collective bargaining
process between the County of Santa Clara and the authorized
bargaining representative for the custodial officers.  However,
nothing in this section shall be construed to assert that the duties
of custodial officers are equivalent to the duties of deputy sheriffs
nor to affect the ability of the county to negotiate pay that
reflects the different duties of custodial officers and deputy
sheriffs.
   (j) This section shall become operative on January 1, 2003.
  This act is an urgency statute necessary for the immediate
preservation of the public peace, health, or safety within the
meaning of Article IV of the Constitution and shall go into immediate
effect.  The facts constituting the necessity are:
   In order to finally, fully, and expeditiously implement the voters'

general enforcement of the laws of this state, whether or not working
alone, and the person has completed the basic training course for
deputy sheriffs and police officers prescribed by the Commission on
Peace Officer Standards and Training.  For level I reserve officers
appointed prior to January 1, 1997, the basic training requirement

shall satisfy the continuing professional training requirement
prescribed by the commission.

state while under the immediate supervision of a peace officer who

reserve officer or a full-time, regular peace officer employed by a
law enforcement agency authorized to have reserve officers.  Level
III reserve officers may transport prisoners without immediate
supervision.  Those persons shall have completed the training

Standards and Training requirements if that reserve officer accepts a
new appointment at the same or lower level with another law
enforcement agency.  If the reserve officer has more than a
three-year break in service, he or she shall satisfy current training
requirements.
   This training shall fully satisfy any other training requirements
required by law, including those specified in Section 832.
   In no case shall a peace officer of an adjoining state provide
services within a California jurisdiction during any period in which
the regular law enforcement agency of the jurisdiction is involved in
a labor dispute.
   (b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), a person who is issued a
level I reserve officer certificate before January 1, 1981, shall

agency is not authorized to act by ordinance, by resolution, either
individually or by class, if the appointing authority determines the
person is qualified to perform general law enforcement duties by
reason of the person's training and experience.  Persons who were
qualified to be issued the level I reserve officer certificate before
January 1, 1981, and who state in writing under penalty of perjury
that they applied for but were not issued the certificate before
January 1, 1981, may be issued the certificate before July 1, 1984.

fees do not exceed the cost for administering the respective
services.  These fees shall be deposited in the Peace Officers'
Training Fund established by Section 13520.
