For the 2019 Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEE) reporting period, just like
the 2018 CLEE reporting period, POST will rely on the online CLEE system to determine
peace officer compliance with the training requirements. If you have not already
created a MO Login account and connected to the online CLEE system to view your training
records, or the training records for your commissioned officers, please contact the
POST Program so we can send you an onboarding email and instructions for creating
The CLEE training requirements for the Jan. 1, 2019 to Dec. 31, 2019 reporting period
are outlined below.
- Peace officers licensed prior to Jan. 1, 2019 must obtain 24 hours of Continuing Law
Enforcement Education (CLEE) by Dec. 31, 2019, with at least 8 of the 24 hours coming
from an "Approved Provider" of training. Of these 24 hours, officers must obtain a
2 hours in Legal Studies;
2 hours in Technical Studies;
2 hours in Interpersonal Perspectives;
2 hours of Skill Development in the area of Firearms;
16 hours of Electives (Any of the above-listed core curricula areas);
1 hour of Racial Profiling training. Racial Profiling training is part of the required
24 hours, not in addition to it.
- Peace officers instructing basic and CLEE training courses can receive 1 hour of CLEE
credit for each hour of basic training or CLEE training they instruct. However, there
is no longer a maximum number of CLEE credit hours that can be earned for instructing
basic or CLEE courses.
- Officers that fail to show they are compliant with their 2019 CLEE training requirements
by March 15, 2020, may, at the discretion of the Director of Public Safety, have their
peace officer license made inactive, which means they cannot hold a commission until
they demonstrate they have completed their CLEE training requirements. Additional
extensions and waivers will still be provided to officers who did not complete their
CLEE training because of medical leave or military leave of absence. If you require
an extension for medical or military reasons, you or your commissioning agency are
required to contact POST. As noted above, POST will use the online CLEE System to
determine officer compliance for the 2019 reporting period, which can be accessed
by all officers that have onboarded to the CLEE system. POST will take steps to notify
officers indicated as non-compliant and to send training reminders via email before
the end of the 2019 CLEE reporting period.
- Peace officers licensed in 2019 will not need to complete CLEE training until calendar
- Law enforcement agencies that wish to deliver CLEE courses for in-service credit must
submit their courses to the POST Program for preapproval. The form to have your in-service
CLEE course approved can be found at dps.mo.gov/dir/programs/post/documents/ce3. Law
enforcement agencies are no longer required to submit a detailed course lesson plan
or a source document with their application. They are required only to submit a detailed
synopsis or a detailed summary of the course to be delivered, along with the other
required documentation, such as the instructor’s record, learning objectives, sample
certificate, etc. Once approved, a law enforcement agency can then offer the in-service
CLEE training to officers from any law enforcement agency.
- Of the 24 hours of annual CLEE training required, 22 of the 24 hours can be completed
via computer-based training. The remaining 2 hours of Skill Development – Firearms
training must be completed through live, hands-on instruction.
