Attention! Have you learned about the newly required 24 hours?

Do you hold Peace Officer Certification? Your POST training requirements got an update. The existing 40-hour mandate must now include 24 hours of specific training. These cover firearms (8 hours with annual qualification), arrest techniques/defensive tactics (8 hours), EVOC (4 hours), and legal updates (4 hours). Remember, these changes are currently in effect for officers whose 2-year training cycle started January 1, 2023, and is in place for all cycles moving forward. Stay compliant to maintain certification. 12.28 Maintaining Certification
