Welcome to Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training’s (POST) website.
POST is preparing for the FY14 Budget Year with optimism. Governor Otter and the Legislature have provided POST Council with the means to engage the coming fiscal year with new opportunities and abilities. In light of the law enforcement issues encompassing our nation, POST is in the planning stage to construct a high-risk/high-threat firing range this year and begin work on a separate multi-year project to build a scenario training area. These are two projects that will advance the training abilities of the officers during their academy experience, and assist POST in preparing all officers for critical incidents. In addition, POST has been authorized two new staffing positions to meet the state training needs: a fourth regional coordinator position to serve South Central Idaho, and an Academy Scenario Coordinator. The new positions will be advertised soon.
With the recent retirement of Larry McGhee, POST has promoted Mary ‘Jil’ Nichols to serve as the new POST Region 2 Training Coordinator. Mrs. Nichols will be serving Ada, Adams, Boise, Camas, Canyon, Elmore, Gem, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Owyhee, Payette, Twin Falls, Valley and Washington Counties.
The POST Council’s will meet on May 2, 2013 in Pocatello, Idaho at the Hampton Inn & Suites (151 Vista Drive). Click to view the agenda.
