POST Board

Peace Officer Standards and Training Board

The POST Board is made up of lay members, professionals and experts within the law and law enforcement communities. The Board makes decisions on policy and advises POST staff on the day-to-day operation of the unit.

Please see C.R.S. 24-31-302 - Creation of board and C.R.S. 24-31-303 Duties - powers of the P.O.S.T. board for further information regarding the composition and duties of the POST Board, and Rule 2 for information regarding meetings.

The POST Board meets quarterly from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on Fridays in March, June, September and December at the Carr Judicial Building, 1300 Broadway, Denver. There is typically an all-day work session held the Thursday before the Board meeting in September. In addition to regular meetings, there are occasionally subcommittees created in response to specific needs, such as determining grant allocations, or appeals by individuals regarding denial or revocation of certification.

Membership openings will be posted on this site, and will be emailed to agencies, academies, and other pertinent groups, depending on type of opening. You may apply for POST Board membership via the Governor's Office of Boards and Commissions. Applications are valid for one year.
