  • Ongoing professionalism and ethics focus of Standards and Certification Program
    2010 Law Enforcement Memorial
    DPSST's Standards and Certification Program implements and regulates compliance with Board-established, statewide standards for professionals in the criminal justice professions - police, corrections, parole and probation, telecommunications and emergency medical dispatch - in conjunction with the policy committees for each discipline. This program ensures criminal justice professionals meet basic training requirements, and schedules officers for their basic training. The program audits the basic training conducted by the Department of Corrections for their corrections officers, and ensures compliance with ongoing professional standards for physical, emotional intellectual and moral fitness, and perishable skills for criminal justice professionals throughout their careers. This program also oversees the state's Polygraph Examiners licensing program, DPSST's administrative rule-writing process, and supports the separately-funded Public Safety Memorial Fund program.
