The Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Program is a government agency responsible for establishing and enforcing training standards for law enforcement officers in the United States.
The program provides certification and continuing education requirements for officers and ensures that officers meet specific training standards in areas such as firearms, defensive tactics, and legal procedures. The POST program also offers accreditation for law enforcement agencies and oversees officers’ hiring and disciplinary processes. The POST program aims to ensure that law enforcement officers are well-trained, professional, and accountable to the communities they serve to promote public safety and trust in law enforcement.
