  • Welcome
    DPSST Administrative Building
    Welcome to the Oregon Public Safety Academy, home of Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST). Our mission is to promote excellence in public safety by delivering quality training and developing and upholding professional standards for police, fire, corrections, parole and probation, and telecommunications personnel, in addition to licensing private security providers and private investigators in Oregon.

    DPSST also regulates and licenses polygraph examiners, determines sheriff candidates' eligibility to run for office and provides staffing for the Public Safety Memorial Fund. We strive to provide resources and certification programs that public safety officers and local public safety organizations need to maintain the highest professional skill standards, stewardship and service to Oregon's communities and citizens. These services are based at our new, 236-acre academy and extend across the state through a network of regional training coordinators.

    Agency functions are guided by several Oregon Revised Statutes and our authority is defined specifically in Chapter No. 259 of the Oregon Administrative Rules. We are governed by a 24-member Board and six discipline-specific policy committees; we serve more than 35,000 public safety constituents across the state.
    ON Tuesday, February 9th, DPSST is scheduled to be migrated to a new telephone system as part of a state-wide upgrade. This cutover will cause interruption to DPSST's telephone and network access that could last ALL DAY on the cutover date.
    During this service interruption, DPSST will not be reachable via telephone or voicemail. While you can still email to DPSST email addresses, staff members will not have access to those during the service interruption. Be assured that we will follow up on any communication as soon as possible once service is restored.
