21st Century Policing in POST and Academy Training Forum

March 21, 2016

The COPS Office, the International Association of Directors for Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST), and Police Officer Standards and Training (POST) organizations came together to discuss the development of national training goals that support the recommendations of the President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing. The discussions explored the role of training in changing the culture of policing.

White House Counsel Neil Eggleston provided the keynote speech, noting that “The state POSTs are in a unique position to play the part of change agents by taking the Task Force's action items and incorporating them as fundamental components of basic recruit and in-service officer training.”
