The Municipal Police Officers’ Education & Training Commission was established in 1974 to set certification and training standards for police officers employed by municipalities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Regulations published from the Act 120 statute guide the process for determining eligibility for certification and standardize the basic academy and annual in-service training curriculum provided to all certified police officers.

Reinstatement of Certification

The Municipal Police Officers' Education and Training Commission approved the issuance of policy by the Executive Director, establishing standards and guidelines for the reinstatement of certification. Standards and Guidelines are found in Policy Statement 2012-05, Consideration for Reinstatement of Certification. Guidelines are to be read before completing and submitting the  Application for Reinstatement. 

The Commission approved the Preamble to Proposed  Rulemaking and Annex A amending Title 37 of the Pennsylvania Code providing a regulation change to the Retired Law Enforcement Identification Act (RLEIA) to conform to the amended definition  of a qualified retired law  enforcement officer found in the Federal Law Enforcement Officers’ Safety Act (LEOSA) and RLEIA. The regulatory change reduces the years-of-service requirement for qualified retired officers  from 15 to 10 years. However, since a proposed change takes substantial time to complete, the Commission authorized the Executive Director to take all steps necessary to implement any change or policy needed allowing retired officers eligible under LEOSA and RLEIA to receive the appropriate identification and qualification cards without delay.
