Division Overview

The Collegedale Police Department places a high priority on training in order to enhance the professionalism of its officers. Ongoing training in law enforcement has shown itself valuable by decreasing liability and providing a solid foundation upon which our officers can build upon.

The training unit is responsible for the training and certification of all our officers in various fields and positions.

Training is affected within the guidelines of Tennessee’s Peace Officer’s Standards of Training (POST) Commission. As mandated by POST, all officers are required to complete annual training. Topics include various classes such as weapons qualifications, tactical combatives, child sex abuse, and many others. Additional training and certification is organized and scheduled to meet the growing needs within the department and the community it serves.
