Training

Law enforcement officers, pursuant to the bodies that provide their certification or authorities, are often required to complete minimum annual training, in addition to the basic, police academy training that many complete. In addition to these basic and ongoing (sometimes called “in-service” training) training requirements, many agencies provide or require additional training for officers and many officers attend and complete additional training individually, to enhance skills or for specialized job requirements. To provide insights into the training and skills of officers and to demonstrate the professionalism within many agencies, some have begun releasing open data on training topics and hours completed.


The agencies below have released data on agency and/or officer training requirements and/or training completed.
