POST Report Tracks Peace Officer Standards
The newest integrity report from the Montana Peace Officers Standards and Training council has been released, providing a look at recent allegations against Montana public safety officers.
Located in Helena, POST trains and certifies officers, including police, dispatchers and corrections officers every year.
The latest report covers October 2021 to August 2023 and includes investigations of drinking and driving offenses, inappropriate sexual behavior, excessive force and ethics violations.
According to a press release, “the report is released every two years, giving a summary of conduct investigations that ultimately cost officers their certification or placed them on a suspension or probation. Many officers remained on the job.”
The report is 15 pages long and includes summaries of 84 incidents. It does not identify individual officers or agencies. To view the report, visit dojmt.gov/wp-content/ uploads/3-Current-Integrity- Report.pdf.
