Welcome to Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training’s (POST) website.
We are honored to announce that Governor Otter has appointed Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney to the position of Chairman of the Peace Officer Standards and Training Council. Sheriff Raney, who has been a member of POST Council for several years, brings 30 years of law enforcement experience and status as one of Idaho’s law enforcement top leaders to direct the POST Council efforts. Sheriff Raney hopes to bring philosophical clarity to the mission of POST and identify new strategic goals for the Council to work towards.
POST Council and staff are beginning a year-long review of POST statutes and administrative rules. This effort is designed to consolidate similar rules between the six sets of rules governing the operations of POST, and to clarify the intent of the POST Council in the application of rules.
POST has also initiated review of the statistical data from the Patrol Job Task Analysis (JTA) related towards physical fitness training standards. 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.
Finally, POST will realign our training regions beginning January 2014. POST received approval to establish a fourth training region, and is in the process of hiring a new Regional Training Coordinator. The new region will encompass the area, west to east, from Elmore County to the I-84/I-86 split; and south to north from Idaho’s southern border to Ketchum. Click to see the diagram of our new training regions as they will be instituted on January 1, 2014.
The POST Council’s will meet on December 5, 2013 at POST in Meridian. The agenda will be announced in the future.
