Training

All police officers are required to complete a state certified police academy. Upon graduation, new officers are required to complete a three month field training program where they will be trained and evaluated on each campus prior to be cleared for independent duty. All officers are required to complete a comprehensive annual in-service training program which includes topics such as legal updates, firearms training, CPR/First Responder, biased based profiling, defensive tactics and other training modules as deemed appropriate.

In addition to these training standards we also have officers that receive specialty training. Here are some examples. Investigations, Rape Aggression Defense (RAD) Instructor, Police Mountain Bike Training, Firearms Instructor, Sexual Assault Investigator, Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED).
