In-Service Police Officer Training
Certified municipal police officers are required to complete twelve (12) hours of continuing education (in-service training) each year which can consist of both MPOETC-developed training and Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEE) courses. MPOETC-developed courses are available either in the classroom at
Certified Police Academies or online through the
PA Virtual Training Network. CLEE courses are other law enforcement related courses submitted by academies or training vendors and approved by MPOETC to count toward required hours.
For information about courses, please call 717-540-1348.
For assistance with PAVTN, please email
Mr. Chris Braun.
MPOETC Developed Training
Lesson plans and support materials for the In-Service Training Courses are available through the PAVTN
Continuing Law Enforcement Education
Approved courses can be taken in place of elective MPOETC courses and will count toward required hours ONLY in the year they are taken. CLEE courses may not be taken to make up missed hours for previous years. In cases where officers are missing training hours for previous years, they must complete the MPOETC-developed courses on the PAVTN, which is accessible via the link at the top of this page. Use the link below to learn more about CLEE courses, including the current list of approved courses and the process for requesting CLEE approval for courses not currently on the list.
