Tex. Occ. Code Section 1701.306
Psychological and Physical Examination


(a)

The commission may not issue a license to a person unless the person is examined by:

(1)

a licensed psychologist or by a psychiatrist who declares in writing that the person is in satisfactory psychological and emotional health to serve as the type of officer for which a license is sought; and

(2)

a licensed physician who declares in writing that the person does not show any trace of drug dependency or illegal drug use after a blood test or other medical test.

(b)

An agency hiring a person for whom a license is sought shall select the examining physician and the examining psychologist or psychiatrist. The agency shall prepare a report of each declaration required by Subsection (a) and shall maintain a copy of the report on file in a format readily accessible to the commission. A declaration is not public information.

(c)

The commission shall adopt rules that:

(1)

relate to appropriate standards and measures to be used by a law enforcement agency in reporting the declarations made under Subsection (a); and

(2)

provide for exceptional circumstances in the administration of the examination of the applicant’s psychological and emotional health, including permitting the examination to be made by a qualified licensed physician instead of a psychologist or psychiatrist.

(d)

The commission may order an applicant to submit to an examination described by Subsection (a) by a psychologist, psychiatrist, or physician appointed by the commission if the commission:

(1)

has cause to believe that a law enforcement agency failed to follow commission rules relating to an examination; or

(2)

discovers that the applicant has submitted a false declaration.
