This bill requires the Civil Service Commission to establish a domestic violence training program for the purpose of educating human resources officers on handling and responding to reports by public employees of domestic violence. The training program would be available, at no cost, to all public employers, regardless of whether the employer is subject to the provisions of Title 11A, Civil Service, of the New Jersey Statutes. Under this bill, all training on domestic violence matters must include information concerning the impact of domestic violence on society, the dynamics of domestic violence, the basic elements of a protection order, the requirements of the "New Jersey Security and Financial Empowerment Act," and the use of available community resources, support services, and treatment options for domestic violence victims. The bill requires the commission to ensure consultation about the program with law enforcement personnel, prosecutors, social workers, and other persons trained in counseling, crisis intervention, or in the treatment of domestic violence victims. The bill requires the commission to review the domestic violence training program and curriculum at least once every two years and modify the training program from time to time, as need may require. Under the bill, participation in the domestic violence training program would be mandatory for all human resources officers employed by a public employer. The bill requires that all human resources officers employed by a public employer take the domestic violence training program within 90 days of their appointment. A human resources officer who successfully completes the domestic violence training program will receive a certification of completion as deemed appropriate by the commission. This bill would take effect on the first day of the sixth month next following enactment, except the commission may take such anticipatory administrative action in advance as may be necessary to implement the provisions of the bill.
