As the end of the 2023 training calendar approaches, many supervisors and officers are likely checking and double checking their training records to make sure they meet Kansas’ annual training obligation. According to K.S.A 74-5607a(b), beginning the second year after certification, every full-time police officer or law enforcement officer shall complete annually 40 hours of law enforcement education or training in subjects relating directly to law enforcement. If an officer is short of hours, there is no need to panic. The Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center has 9 available training sessions as well as over 2 dozen events listed on the calendar (https://kletc.org/calendar) in addition to a dozen more online course offerings.
Every certified Kansas officer is given access to the Central Registry Training Database to search and verify training accuracy. If you know your username and password, you can enter it at https://training.kscpost.net/. For officers who do not remember their password, they can click the “Forgot Password” link on the Central Registry Database login page. They will need to enter their username and then click Submit. The database will then email a time-sensitive link for the officer to reset their password. In most cases, the username will be the officer’s registered email address with the Central Registry.
KSCPOST is instituting a new version of the Demographic and Employment Information form (CR301) in which we collect the newly hired officer’s personal email. When a new Demographic is entered into the Central Registry, the officer will automatically be issued login information to view their training records. It is highly preferred that the email provided is the officer’s personal email as that will allow the officer to view their hours no matter their law enforcement employment status. A personal email account will become even more important in a couple of months when we make all forms available for submission in the Central Registry as requested by numerous agencies.
For officers who don’t recall their username, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org requesting a login to view their training hours online.
As we all strive to become more professional, efficient, and effective, we hope you found this spotlight topic to be informative and beneficial. A new topic will be chosen each month and emailed to those that have signed up to receive updates. If you have a topic that you would like KSCPOST to examine in future spotlights, please contact us.
