POST Guidelines on Legislative Mandated Training 2021

The Utah legislature in 2021 mandated that all peace officers in the state receive annual training on topics such as mental health crises, autism spectrum disorders, and de-escalation.  These documents outline POST’s guidelines for these courses.  

POST does NOT endorse individual instructors, curricula or vendors.  If the chief administrator of the law enforcement agency feels that a course, instructor, or vendor meets these guidelines, then POST will accept the training as fulfilling these requirements.
