One of the strengths in the POST program is that the cadets are taught in the classroom and then apply it in scenario training. This allows the cadets to be better prepared for different scenarios they’ll have to deal with out in the real world.

Salt Lake Community College held the 2012 Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Law Enforcement Academy Graduation ceremony on December 20, at the Gail Miller Conference Center at the College’s Miller Campus.
Sheriff Jim Winder provided the commencement address for the Twenty-four POST graduates in attendance.
“There’s evil in the world,” Winder told graduates. “But this world is good. You want to know what makes it good? It is us.”
Two graduates of session #298 were female, 22 were male.
“One of the strengths in the POST program is that the cadets are taught in the classroom and then apply it in scenario training,” said Lieutenant Wade L. Breur. “This allows the cadets to be better prepared for different scenarios they’ll have to deal with out in the real world.”
Lieutenant Wade L. Breur, who has been with the Utah Department of Public Safety for 17 years — the past six with POST, noted that the goal of the officer training course is to produce a graduating class better each year than the one before.
“What is most impressive about this class is the different backgrounds or careers cadets had before starting the training and how they supported each other through the long hours and late nights,” he said
In concert with Peace Officer Standards and Training Council, the mission of the Utah Division of Peace Officers is to provide professional standards and training, leadership and certification for peace officers and dispatchers as we work to protect the rights and privileges of Utah’s citizens while elevating the integrity of the profession.
