Education and Training

Throughout New York State and the United States, all law enforcement agencies adhere to training standards. Some agencies define their own; others are determined by municipal governments. Regardless of who sets the requirements, each agency is responsible to ensure that all of its officers are trained to the same standards. This consistency in knowledge and quality improves the level of performance of the officers and significantly increases the safety of the officers and the public that they serve.
