Utah State law requires that every officer in the state receive forty hours of law enforcement training each year to maintain their law enforcement certification.
Officers are instructed in:
Emergency Vehicle Operations
Mental Health / Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)
The Training Unit is staffed by a Training Sergeant and Training Officers who coordinate and teach many of the training classes that are held.
Field Training Officer Program
The Training Unit oversees a 22 week Field Training Officer Program for newly hired officers. This task based proficiency program teaches new officers the skills necessary to operate on their own as solo officers.
