NOTE: Many of these questions can be answered by reviewing the In-Service Training Guidelines.
Full-time law enforcement officers become obligated to receive 40 hours of annual law enforcement training beginning the second full year after certification.
The Central Registry operates on a fiscal year basis. In other words, the “training year” for in-service training compliance purposes runs from July 1 through June 30th.
If an officer graduates from KLETC on May 1st of 2009, that officer would not be obligated to the 40 hours training requirement until July 1st, 2010.
All Certified full-time Kansas officers. This includes full time officers who fit into any of these categories:
KSA 74-5607a(b) imposes upon the INDIVIDUAL OFFICER the obligation to receive the training. In other words, it is ultimately up to the officer to ensure that he/she receives the required training. However, KSA 74-5617(g) requires the officer’s agency to provide the opportunity to receive training; in other words, the agency must take reasonable steps to allow its officers the opportunity to obtain the required number of training hours.
Any full-time officer who does not meet the 40 hour training requirement by June 30th will need to write a request for extension letter to the Executive Director.
Video training may count towards partial satisfaction of the training requirement. All video training is classified as media training. Only 20 hours of media training may be applied toward satisfaction of the training requirement. All video training must meet the following requirements:
Updated - The database currently credits training hours for a course by the course start date. If a training course extended over two training years, it is possible to report this as two separate courses. This would ensure that the hours earned in each training year were applied for the appropriate year.
For example, an officer took a course that lasted from 6/30/2017-7/2/2017. This course should be reported as two separate courses. The hours earned on 6/30/2017 should be counted toward the 2017 training year, and the hours earned from 7/1/2017-7/2/2017 should be counted toward the 2018 training year.
If there is any question on how to report a course, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To enter training hours online, an officer must be approved by the agency head for such entry and take the online data entry training course. If you are interested in taking the online data entry course, you may visit KLETC’s website and click on “Training Events” to see when the next course is available.
University, college or community college credits earned may be applied toward satisfaction of the annual in-service requirement if:
Such credits will be counted as 15 hours of training per semester credit hour earned. For example, an officer who receives credit for a three hour course in Juvenile Delinquency should be credited with 45 in-service hours. Obviously, such credit would entirely satisfy the officer’s in-service training requirement for that year.
All law enforcement officers are required to take a Bias Based Policing course once every training year. There is currently no hour requirement for such training.
All officers must qualify under a designated rangemaster or instructor other than themselves.
Firearms qualification and receiving credit for firearms training need to be reported on two separate forms. To receive credit for firearms training, an officer must complete a Training Report form and mark the classification “firearms” and provide all the necessary information. To qualify for firearms, an officer must complete the Firearms Qualification Report . Even though an officer only has to qualify once annually for firearms, he or she can have up to 16 hours of firearms training counted towards fulfillment of the 40 hours training requirement.
Any range course that counts toward qualification is considered firearms training. Additional training that includes more advanced exercises can be classified as “unclassified” training.
The “Notice of Termination or Status Change” form, must be signed by the Agency Head or Appointing Authority, as stated on the form. The appointing authority for the Police Chief is the individual who has the authority to hire or terminate the Police Chief, such as the City Manager, City Administrator, Mayor, etc. For example: A Police Chief is resigning from an agency. The Police Chief’s “Notice of Termination or Status Change” form must be signed by the City Manager, City Administrator, Mayor, etc. The form will not be accepted if the form is signed by the Chief’s replacement and will be returned to the agency for correction.
If a “Demographic and Employment Information” form is completed for an incoming Police Chief or a “Notice of Termination or Status Change” form is completed for an officer’s rank change to Police Chief, it must be signed by the City Manager, City Administrator, Mayor, etc. The form will not be accepted if it is signed by the incoming Police Chief and will be returned to the agency for correction.

NOTE: The following information applies to ONLINE AGENCIES ONLY.
If an officer is listed on the online roster for training and the officer is no longer employed for your agency, it is possible the officer hasn’t ever been disassociated with the agency where he/she was once employed. Please complete and submit a Status Change form to the KS·CPOST.
