Summary of Original Version Create a new section of KRS Chapter 95 to define "police officer" and "city"; permit cities to employ retired police officers if the officer: participated in the Law Enforcement Foundation Program or retired as a commissioned State Police officer, retired with at least 20 years of service credit with no administrative charges pending, and met the separation of employment requirements so that retirement benefits from Kentucky Retirement Systems were not voided; specify that retired police officers employed by a city shall continue to receive the benefits they were eligible to receive upon retirement but shall not accrue any additional retirement or health benefits during reemployment; preclude retirement and any health contributions from being paid by the city to Kentucky Retirement Systems or the Kentucky Employees Health Plan on a retired officer who is reemployed under the provisions of this section; permit individuals employed under this section to be employed for a term not to exceed one year which may be renewed at the discretion and need of the city; amend KRS 61.637 to conform.
