Governor Whitmer signs bill to fund in-service training for licensed officers
On January 31, 2023, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed Public Act 1 of 2023 (PA 1) into law. PA 1 provides for a continuing education training requirement for licensed law enforcement officers and includes $20 million in funding.
This is a long-awaited advancement in training and training resources will be the foundation to better safeguard our communities, increases agency effectiveness and efficiency, and provide updated knowledge, skills, and safety practices for all officers throughout their entire career, no matter where in our state they serve.
A great deal of work lies ahead, and this process will take time to develop and identify relevant, timely and necessary quality training. The Commission will provide updates as it moves forward with this work and implementation of the program.
