COVID-19 UPDATE

The Georgia Public Safety Training Center returned to full operations on Monday, May 18th. We are following the recommendations of the CDC, Department of Public Health, and the guidance of both the Governor’s Office and Georgia POST Council. Precautionary steps are in place to help reduce the risk to our students and staff.

Anyone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, a temperature over 100°F, or who has knowingly been exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19 should not come to any GPSTC campus.

Governor's Initiative Online Courses

Effective April 1, 2020, the new Building Positive Police-Community Relations course will replace two courses: Building Positive Community Relations and Serving Georgia’s Diverse Communities. This new course provides four hours of P.O.S.T. credit.

Additional Governor’s Initiative Courses remain available, including Start the Conversation, which seeks to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health issues. If you wish to remain anonymous while viewing this documentary, click here to access the YouTube link. However, please note that you will NOT receive P.O.S.T. credit.

Use of Force and De-escalation training are required of all sworn law enforcement officers in the state. Officers must also complete a minimum of two hours Community Policing training every year.

These courses are inclusive of, not in addition to, the 20-hour continuing education required by O.C.G.A. §35-8-21.
