SB978 Operations Training

Senate Bill 978 (Bradford) was approved by Governor Brown on September 30, 2018, taking effect January 1, 2020. This legislation requires Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) and local law enforcement agencies to publish education and training material on their Internet Web sites.

The Nevada County Sheriff's Office attends other training that pertain to officer safety, tactics, and deployment on various incidents that have been deemed exempt from disclosure. However, in the effort to be transparent for the public interest, the office will list training and post materials that have been approved for disclosure and are not copyrighted material.
