Agenda

Overview

The Little Hoover Commission is examining the development of training standards for California’s law enforcement community.  

Lawmakers established the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) in 1959 to set minimum selection and training standards for California law enforcement agencies. Agency participation in the POST program is voluntary, though 92 percent of California’s nearly 700 law enforcement agencies participate. The POST Commission also offers a number of tools and services for participating agencies and issues professional certificates to recognize peace officer achievement and proficiency.

Each year, lawmakers introduce new legislation to amend training requirements for peace officers and clarify training priorities for the POST Commission. Given lawmakers ongoing interest in ensuring California peace officers receive adequate and appropriate training, with this study the Commission will:

  • Review and analyze existing training requirements for California peace officers.
  • Consider how current training requirements align with the responsibilities of peace officers in the field.
  • Review the process for amending peace officer training requirements.
If you would like more information regarding this study, please contact Tamar Foster at tamar.foster@lhc.ca.gov or at (916) 445-2125.
