Personnel & Training

Officer training at firing range


P&T is responsible for all aspects of recruitment and hiring for police officers and Dispatch staff. This division manages all personnel files with the exception of health care and benefit information, which the city handles. One of the primary responsibilities of this division is to conduct on-going training for all employees. State law requires a prescribed level of mandatory training for police officers. However, the complexities associated with law enforcement in the 21st century require additional training in a wide variety of often complex and highly technical areas. P&T administers all promotional exams and testing processes. In addition, P&T also maintains multiple department police-specific training programs including firearms, defensive tactics, ASP, OC, defensive driving and CPR/First Aid.
