  • MPTC TY2018 Mandated Training Standard

    July 2017 through June 2018

    Please continue to check updates to In-service schedules which will be posted in September 2017.

    The Committee made the following determinations with respect to mandatory statewide in-service training for all sworn officers (full-time and reserve).  These blocks of training equal twenty-four (24) hours of training (if the officer attends the local option class), which means every officer will need a minimum of sixteen (16) additional hours of police-related training to meet the mandatory annual in-service training requirement:

        • Legal updates (6 hours), to include:
          • A review of hate crimes
          • LGTBQ issues
          • Marijuana legal issues and enforcement guidelines
        • Combating Extremism and Radicalization (3 hours)
        • Domestic Violence (3 hours), to include:
          • Updated guidelines
          • Legal updates and review
          • High-risk assessment toolkit
        • Critical Incident Stress Awareness (3 hours)
        • Procedural Justice/Legitimacy – Part II (3 hours)
        • Defensive Tactics (3 hours), to include:
          • Use-of-force review
          • Handcuffing
          • OC
          • Baton
        • The MPTC will furnish at least three (3) hours of a local option (such as CPR/First Aid), if the budget allows. 
          A local option is a topic chosen by the local MPTC program coordinator based upon input from area chiefs of police. Please contact your regional MPTC program coordinator if you have a suggestion for the local option in your area.

    *The above requirements also pertain to chiefs of police, but the Committee will be having additional conversations regarding in-service training specific to chiefs of police and whether additional or modified training standards are warranted.

    ** Officers will still be required to complete the annual firearms training and re-qualification requirements, which do count towards the 40-hour training requirement, as does any other police-related training, regardless of the provider.
