Will my Peace Officer license be suspended if I an not CLEE compliant?

Possibly. The final change is related to officers that fail to obtain their CLEE training by the end of the reporting period. Officers that fail to show they are compliant with their CLEE training requirements by March 15, 2019, may, at the discretion of the Director of the Department of Public Safety, have their peace officer license made inactive, which means they cannot hold a commission until they demonstrate they have completed their CLEE training requirements. Additional extensions and waivers will still be provided to officers who did not complete their CLEE training because of medical or military leave of absence. If you require an extension for medical or military reasons, you or your commissioning agency are required to contact POST. As noted above, POST will use the online CLEE system to determine officer compliance for the 2018 reporting period, which can be accessed by all officers that have onboarded to the CLEE system. POST will take steps to notify officers indicated as non-compliant and send training reminders via email before the end of the 2018 CLEE reporting period.  Only those officers that have connected to the CLEE system will receive these emails.

What are the reporting requirements for 2018?

The CLEE training requirements for the Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2018 reporting period are as follows: 

  • Peace officers licensed prior to Jan. 1, 2018 must obtain 24 hours of Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEE) by Dec. 31, 2018, with at least 8 of the 24 hours coming from an “Approved Provider” of training. Of these 24 hours, officers must obtain a minimum of:
