In most states, peace officers training programs are under the jurisdiction of that state’s Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Council, which ensures that training meets accepted professional standards. Most Peace Officers jobs require P.O.S.T. certification.
The P.O.S.T. program was developed to provide standardized critical information and develop essential skills for active Chaplains within city and county public safety departments and will be providing Chaplaincy services to members of law enforcement organizations throughout the State of California. The program follows a learner-centered, active training model that incorporates pre-reading assignments, individual and group classroom assignments, and participation in pragmatic, problem-based, real-world exercises. The program has been developed with an experience-level emphasis.
The course is a 40-hour, weeklong and in-person program.
Next P.O.S.T. class starts: Monday, September 25th, 2023. For more information, contact Senior Chaplain Debra Fontes at: [email protected]
Attendance is restricted to individuals who are currently associated with a California Law Enforcement organization’s chaplaincy program or who are sponsored by an established Law Enforcement Chaplaincy organization currently providing direct services to law enforcement agencies.
