The Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Board documents and manages the certification and training of all active peace officers and reserve peace officers working for Colorado law enforcement agencies. POST also provides continuing training on emerging issues, including anti-bias, DNA and witness protection issues. Colorado POST is a unit of the Criminal Justice Section of the Colorado Attorney General's Office. POST Mission: The mission of Colorado POST is to establish and maintain standards for peace officer training and certification that are relevant, realistic and responsive to our ever-changing world.
POST distributes the funds on an annual basis through a competitive grant process. Ten (10) training regions have been established throughout the state that are responsible for applying for funds on behalf of the law enforcement agencies within their geographical location. Non-profit training providers, local governments, colleges and universities also receive funding to provide training to law enforcement agencies throughout the state.
