Act 180: Mandatory In-Service

Police officers in Pennsylvania are required to complete twelve hours of mandatory in-service training annually in order to maintain their certification.  Courses are determined by Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Commission, and certified schools offer the courses in various locations. 

Since the courses are mandatory, there is no charge for municipal police officers. Other law enforcement agencies such as campus police, sheriff's offices, and school police must purchase vouchers through MPOETC in order to send officers to the classes. An individual must show a current police certification card or a voucher to participate in the class.

To apply for the Act 180 Mandatory In-Service Training program, please download and complete the registration form.
