Military Police and SECURITY Forces Eligible to Receive Partial Training Waiver
The North Dakota National Guard along with the North Dakota Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) board recently announced a partial training waiver for U.S. Army and Marine trained Military Police and U.S. Air Force trained Security Forces personnel who want to become North Dakota law enforcement officers. This waiver would allow qualified personnel to take the examination to become licensed North Dakota peace officers after a 2-week course, rather than the current 12-week course.
The military police training Soldiers, Marines and Airmen receive is federally accredited by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Accreditation (FLETA) board. Because of the federal accreditation, North Dakota Administrative Code allows the training academy to offer these military police and security forces a waiver for a portion of training.
The University of Mary and the 164th Regional Training Institute (RTI) recently teamed up to share best practices and lessons learned in classroom facilitation. Dr. Brenda Tufte, Professor and Chair of Graduate Education at the University of Mary, spent time with the 164th RTI instructors discussing current and emerging classroom and student engagement practices. This is the fourth year of the partnership.
