626.8432 REVOCATION; SUSPENSION; DENIAL.
    Subdivision 1. Grounds for revocation, suspension, or denial. (a) The board may refuse to
issue, refuse to renew, refuse to reinstate, suspend, revoke eligibility for licensure, or revoke a
peace officer or part-time peace officer license for any of the following causes:
(1) fraud or misrepresentation in obtaining a license;
(2) failure to meet licensure requirements; or
(3) a violation of the standards of conduct set forth in Minnesota Rules, chapter 6700.
(b) Unless otherwise provided by the board, a revocation or suspension applies to each
license, renewal, or reinstatement privilege held by the individual at the time final action is taken
by the board. A person whose license or renewal privilege has been suspended or revoked shall be
ineligible to be issued any other license by the board during the pendency of the suspension or
revocation.
    Subd. 2. Discovery of disqualifying conviction after licensure. The board may suspend or
revoke a peace officer or part-time peace officer license when the licensee has been convicted of a
crime recognized by the board as a crime that would disqualify the licensee from participating in
a professional peace officer education course, taking the peace officer licensing examination or
the part-time peace officer licensing examination, or maintaining eligibility for licensure under
Minnesota Rules, chapter 6700. The authority to suspend or revoke a license shall include all
individuals who have been granted a license when a disqualifying conviction that would have
precluded eligibility for licensure is discovered after licensure.
