Officers engage in a number of advanced and continuous training courses which enable them to remain at the forefront of the law enforcement profession. Each newly hired officer must be a state certified police officer with a minimum of two years prior experience. Once hired, officers undergo a rigorous field training program within the police department, which includes advanced certifications and training such as Radar and Intoxilizer Certifications, Standardized Field Sobriety training, Firearms Qualifications, and Defensive Tactics training. During the field training program, officers must familiarize themselves with the patrol rifle. All officers undergo annual Active Shooter Training in cooperation with local and state law enforcement agencies.
