California Baton Training Facility License Defense Attorney

California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services License Defense Lawyer

The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, known as BSIS, licenses Baton Training Facilities in the State of California. Most California Baton Training Facilities have minimal or no contact with the enforcement arm of the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. For Baton Training Facilities who become part of the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services’ disciplinary process, the consequences are profound. The Baton Training Facility License disciplinary process is complex, procedural and time consuming. Baton Training Facilities facing the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services disciplinary process should seek legal representation from an experienced California Baton Training Facility License Defense Attorney.

California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services Investigation Defense Lawyer

The majority of California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services investigations begin with the filing of a consumer Complaint. However, California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services Investigations also occur through sting operations, criminal conviction referrals and criminal investigations. The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services employs non sworn Program Representatives to conduct non criminal investigations. The California Department of Consumer Affairs employs sworn Peace Officer Investigators to conduct criminal investigations against Baton Training Facilities. These employees investigate criminal and administrative law violations. Administrative Law Due Process Rights differ substantially from the Due Process Rights accorded in criminal law.

It is important to have an attorney that understands the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services disciplinary process. At the conclusion of a California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services investigation, the Bureau has several options. The Bureau can choose to close the Complaint. The Bureau can choose to issue a Citation. The Bureau can also choose to refer the matter to the California Attorney General’s Office. The California Attorney General’s Office will determine whether cause exists to file a formal disciplinary Accusation. In cases involving criminal conduct, the Bureau may refer the case to the District Attorney’s Office for criminal prosecution.

If you are a Baton Training Facility Licensee facing a California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services investigation, contact a California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services License Defense Attorney for representation.

California Baton Training Facility License Accusation Defense Attorney

A formal Accusation served on a California Baton Training Facility Licensee serves as notice to a Baton Training Facility that the Bureau intends to revoke the Baton Training Facilities’ License. The Baton Training Facility, now called the Respondent, has only 15 days from the date that the Accusation was served (not received, but served) to file a Notice of Defense. The failure to file a Notice of Defense results in a Default against the Baton Training Facility. A Default will result in the immediate Revocation of the Baton Training Facilities License.

An Accusation is a serious matter that can result in the suspension or revocation of a Baton Training Facility License in California. In many cases, it is possible for Baton Training Facilities to reach a Stipulated Agreement with the California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services. A Stipulated Agreement is a formal term for a settlement agreement. If a Stipulated Agreement cannot be reached, the parties will proceed to a formal Hearing before the California Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).

Baton Training Facilities facing a California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services Accusation should contact an experienced California Baton Training Facility License Defense Attorney for representation. Common causes of action for disciplinary Accusations against Baton Training Facilities include:

  • Aiding and Abetting Unlicensed Baton Training Instructor Activity
  • Dishonesty or Fraud
  • Employing Non Licensed Baton Trainers
  • Failure to Maintain Adequate Records
  • Failure to Provide Baton Training
  • Failure to Provide Baton Course Materials
  • Incompetence

California Baton Training Facility License Hearing Attorney

The California Office of Administrative Hearings, also known as OAH, maintains several Court Hearing locations. These Court locations are in Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento and San Diego. In some instances, Hearings may be held offsite in Bakersfield, Fresno, Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Francisco, San Jose or Ventura. The Administrative Law Hearing is a formal Hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.

The Administrative Law Judge, or ALJ, will issue a written Proposed Decision approximately 30 days after the Hearing. The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services can adopt, modify or reject the ALJ’s Proposed Decision. The California Bureau of Security and Investigative Services’ action is called the Final Decision and Order. There are two main rights of Appeal of a Final Decision and Order. California Government Code § 11521 allows a Baton Training Facility to file a Petition for Reconsideration prior to the effective date of the Final Decision and Order. Pursuant to California Code of Civil Procedure § 1094.5, the Baton Training Facility can also file a Petition for Writ of Mandamus in Superior Court. A Writ must be filed within 30 days of the effective date of the Final Decision and Order.
