Welcome to Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training’s (POST) website.

POST has realigned our training regions for 2014. Click to see the diagrams for our new training regions that changed on January 1, 2014. Our new Region 3 Training Coordinator, John Lamm, has opened the POST Jerome Office and is serving Region 3 agencies.

POST received comments from agency administrators about our Patrol JTA task list. Staff will be preparing performance objectives for the new Patrol Academy curriculum. This process will involve subject matter experts from around the state.

POST staff have completed work on two new video presentations for students preparing to attend the POST Academy. The presentations are an introduction to academy physical training and the physical readiness test. We encourage you to have your new recruits view these presentations before attending POST Academy.

POST will initiate the testing phase of the Patrol Job Task Analysis (JTA) related towards physical fitness training standards during March. This process will include gathering data from incumbent officers as we review the validity of physical fitness cutoff scores. The PRT will continue to be used as a predictor towards the final job-related physical testing process.

The POST Council will meet on March 13, 2014 at POST in Meridian. The agenda will be announced later.
