Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST)

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) serves two important roles in our state’s criminal justice system. The first, establishing minimum state standards for training and certification of more than 41,000 public and private safety professionals. The second, providing a comprehensive basic training program for all newly hired law enforcement professionals, and supporting professional development by offering advanced and leadership training opportunities.

DPSST will hold three virtual sessions later this month specifically for local community leaders. One session will address Oregon’s criminal justice professional standards system. Another will focus specifically on police use of force training in Oregon. Another will address the basic police training program offered at DPSST to all newly hired city, county, state, tribal, and university law enforcement professionals. Participants will have the ability to ask questions of DPSST staff during each of these sessions.

Below please find information on each of these sessions and we invite you to participate. Each session will be recorded so that it is available for review by those unable to attend.
