Professional Standards and Training (PST)

The Professional Standards and Training (PST) Unit is responsible for the recruitment and hiring of new police personnel.  The Professional Standards and Training Unit consists of one lieutenant, sergeant and community services officer.  Together they coordinate, administer and implement all training activities throughout the department.  The PST Unit works to ensure all department personnel understand and follow all department policies and procedures.

This unit is also responsible for maintaining adherence to guidelines and standards that must be met by all officers and civilian personnel. As a California Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) certified agency, the CHPD PST Unit maintains compliance with the regulations set forth by POST.

The Citrus Heights Police Department continually strives to maintain the highest standard of professionalism in both its sworn and civilian employees. The PST Unit is committed to providing premier training to department members.  A comprehensive training plan and succession planning model are imperative to fulfilling this goal.
