The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office Training Unit is committed to delivering exceptional law enforcement training to both sworn and professional staff in order to prepare them for exemplary service in the communities we serve.

The Training Unit develops, schedules, and presents law enforcement training for sworn peace officers and professional staff (approximately 740 members).

Continued Professional Training (CPT) is coordinated for law enforcement officers.  Our programs assist agencies in meeting State mandates as required by Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST).

The Detention Division Training Unit follows the Standards and Training for Corrections (STC) by scheduling entry level and annual training for staff assigned to jail facilities subject to state mandated training requirements per the Board of Corrections (BOC). Staff assigned to courts and temporary holding facilities are assisted by the unit as well in meeting training requirements.
