This bill amends the existing statute concerning training programs for municipal prosecutors. Presently, section 10 of P.L. 1999, c.349 authorizes the Attorney General, in consultation with the county and municipal prosecutors, to develop curricula for training programs for all municipal prosecutors, however, such action is not mandatory. Moreover, participation in such training is voluntary. This bill directs the Attorney General, in consultation with the county and municipal prosecutors, to develop a training program for all municipal prosecutors which shall include, but not be limited to, domestic violence training. Participation in the domestic violence training is mandatory under the bill. Under the bill, the domestic violence training course and curriculum shall be reviewed at least every two years and modified by the Division of Criminal Justice from time to time as need may require. The Attorney General shall be responsible for ensuring that all municipal prosecutors attend an initial domestic violence training within 90 days of appointment or transfer and annual inservice training of at least four hours.
