The MPTC Committee made the following determinations with respect to mandatory statewide in-service training for all sworn officers (fulltime and reserve) in TY2018.  Blocks of training equal twenty-four (24) hours of training, which means every officer will need a minimum of sixteen (16) additional hours of police-related training to meet the mandatory 40-hour in-service training requirement:

  • Legal updates (6 hours), to include:
    • A review of hate crimes
    • LGBTQ issues
    • Marijuana legal issues and enforcement guidelines
  • Combatting 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
  • In addition, the MPTC will furnish at least three (3) hours of a local option (such as CPR/First Aid), if the budget allows

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