POST Commission to develop training standards

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Peace Officers and Standards and Training Commission met again today as they continue to meet their objective of building strategic training and education standards for Guam's law enforcement community.  POST executive director Dennis Santo Tomas says the mandates are necessary so that peace officers understand what is required of them to move up to the next level throughout their career.

The commission is also conducting a survey to determine exactly who should be considered a peace officer. Santo Tomas said, "Do they feel the current list of peace officers is sufficient in order to do our jobs here on the island? We're just seeking their input and certainly we'll provide all the input we get here today to the public safety committee, which I also sit on."

There have been concerns raised about removing some public safety positions from under the peace officer classification, but the commission has not yet finalized that list as it will be reviewed by the Lieutenant Governor's Public Safety Committee.
