Continuing Law Enforcement Education

Click here to view our current calendar

Effective September 30, 2018 the subcategories for CLEE will no longer be required.  The new requirements for the Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2018 reporting period, and all subsequent reporting periods, 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:
     o 2 hours in Legal Studies;
     o 2 hours in Technical Studies;
     o 2 hours in Interpersonal Perspectives;
     o 2 hours of Skill Development in the area of Firearms;
     o 16 hours of Electives (Any of the above-listed core curricula areas);
     o 1 hour of Racial Profiling training. Racial Profiling training is part of the required 24 hours, not in addition to it.

For the 2018 CLEE reporting period, POST will rely on the online CLEE system to determine peace officer compliance with these training requirements. Therefore, POST will no longer be mailing CLEE affirmations to the agency CEO after Jan 1st. If you have not already created a MO Login account and connected to the online CLEE system to view the training records for your officers, or to enter your in-service training records, please contact our office so we can send you an onboarding email and instructions.

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.
