Last October the Minnesota POST Board approved a 5-year strategic plan to help guide our organization as we enhance our partnerships and improve our service delivery for our customers. As part of this planning process, we solicited stakeholder input into critical functions the POST Board currently performs or functions they would like to see the board perform in the future. Tracking continuing education credits for officers was consistently identified as a function POST should perform and the board agreed. As the statewide licensing agency for peace officers, it seems only natural for POST to provide this service for officers and their agencies. POST is in the process of upgrading our on-line services capabilities to allow officers to view their CE credits on-line and for CLEO's or their designee to also have access to this information, as well as, perform other automated reporting with POST. This will be especially helpful during the annual license renewal period and ultimately eliminate the need for individual audits of officer's continuing education credits.
Beginning July 1, 2016, Continuing Education Sponsors of POST approved training will be required to submit "Affidavit of Attendance" rosters to the POST Board. We encourage agencies to send the document(s) via e-mail to POSTBoard.Continuing.Education-Rosters@state.mn.us. We will also accept the training documents by mail or fax (651-643-3072) if needed.
