Idaho's POST Council requires all peace officers to complete a ten week basic academy. The strenuous curriculum focuses on the foundation of knowledge and practical skills necessary for patrol duties. Upon successful completion of this course, a student will be eligible for basic certification as a patrol officer.

If you are interested in attending the Basic Academy, your agency must release a link to the online packet to you. The packet must be received and cleared by POST no later than 30 days prior to the academy start date. Any packets received late will be reviewed for the next available Academy session.

Dorm rooms are only available for anyone residing more than a 30 mile radius from POST. Dorm rooms are limited and are available upon request when completing the academy online application. Please direct any questions pertaining to the dorm to Tammy Kelly at (208) 884-7292 or via email at

Once your packet has been received and approved, you will be notified in an acceptance letter with further direction prior to your arrival to POST

Please direct any questions pertaining to the Patrol Academy Packet to Jeremy Beck at (208) 884-7337 or via email at For those individuals not already affiliated with an Idaho Law Enforcement Agency, click here for information on the self-sponsored program.
