13520.  There is hereby created in the State Treasury a Peace
Officers' Training Fund, which is hereby appropriated, without regard
to fiscal years, exclusively for costs of administration and for
grants to local governments and districts pursuant to this chapter.

13522.  Any city, county, city and county, or district which desires
to receive state aid pursuant to this chapter shall make application
to the commission for the aid. The initial application shall be
accompanied by a certified copy of an ordinance, or in the case of
the University of California, the California State University, and
agencies not authorized to act by ordinance, by a resolution, adopted
by its governing body providing that while receiving any state aid
pursuant to this chapter, the city, county, city and county, or
district will adhere to the standards for recruitment and training
established by the commission. The application shall contain any
information the commission may request.

13523.  The commission shall annually allocate and the State
Treasurer shall periodically pay from the Peace Officers' Training
Fund, at intervals specified by the commission, to each city, county,
and district which has applied and qualified for aid pursuant to
this chapter an amount determined by the commission pursuant to
standards set forth in its regulations. The commission shall grant
aid only on a basis that is equally proportionate among cities,
counties, and districts. State aid shall only be provided for
training expenses of full-time regularly paid employees, as defined
by the commission, of eligible agencies from cities, counties, or
districts.
   In no event shall any allocation be made to any city, county, or
district which is not adhering to the standards established by the
commission as applicable to such city, county, or district.

13524.  Any county wishing to receive state aid pursuant to this
chapter for the training of regularly employed and paid inspectors

Section 830.1 who conduct criminal investigations, shall include such
request for aid in its application to the commission pursuant to
Sections 13522 and 13523.

13525.  Any city, county, city and county, district, or joint powers
agency which desires to receive state aid pursuant to this chapter
for the training of regularly employed and paid local public safety
dispatchers, as described in subdivision (c) of Section 13510, shall
include that request for aid in its application to the commission
pursuant to Sections 13522 and 13523.

13526.  In no event shall any allocation be made from the Peace
Officers' Training Fund to a local government agency if the agency
was not entitled to receive funding under any of the provisions of
this article, as they read on December 31, 1989.

13526.1.  (a) It is the intent of the Legislature in adding this
section that effect be given to amendments made by Chapter 950 of the
Statutes of 1989. The Legislature recognizes those amendments were
intended to make port wardens and special officers of the Harbor
Department of the City of Los Angeles entitled to allocations from
the Peace Officers' Training Fund for state aid pursuant to this
chapter, notwithstanding the amendments made by Chapter 1165 of the
Statutes of 1989, which added Section 13526 to this code.
   (b) Notwithstanding Section 13526, for the purposes of this
chapter, the port wardens and special officers of the Harbor
Department of the City of Los Angeles shall be entitled to receive
funding from the Peace Officers' Training Fund.

13526.2.  Notwithstanding Section 13526, for the purposes of this
chapter, the housing authority police departments of the City of Los
Angeles and the City of Oakland shall be entitled to receive funding
from the Peace Officers' Training Fund.
