POST is the regulatory agency that establishes and maintains the minimum qualifications, training
and standards for Nevada’s peace officers. It is the governing authority for the employment,
behavior, basic and professional certification, course certification, and training requirements for all
peace officers in the state. The nine members of the Commission are appointed by the Governor and
regularly scheduled meetings are held to discuss and revise standards and regulations, hear issues
addressing the law enforcement community, and render judgment regarding officer behavior; which
may result in denial, suspension or revocation of POST certification. In addition, POST develops
training (both classroom and online), conducts a basic training academy and professional courses
delivering quality instruction to peace officers throughout the state. POST performs audits of all
agencies and academies providing guidance and oversight while monitoring their compliance with
the standards set forth in the NRS and NAC.
