The P.O.S.T. Management Course for Law EnforcementMain P.O.S.T. web­site


In the P.O.S.T. Man­age­ment Course’s 104-hour for­mat, there are 13 days of instruc­tion, spread over three weeks, with a min­i­mum two-week inter­s­es­sion between each week of instruc­tion. We pro­vide a vari­ety of instruc­tors who offer a diver­sity of insight into the com­plex field of law enforce­ment man­age­ment. In addi­tion to the for­mal class­room instruc­tion, you’ll have an oppor­tu­nity to gain valu­able insight from inter­ac­tion with your peers. You will be expected to com­plete assign­ments dur­ing the inter­s­es­sions, and also com­plete and present a group project at the end of the course.

The P.O.S.T. Man­age­ment Course con­tin­ues to evolve, reflect­ing the dynamic envi­ron­ment in which law enforce­ment man­agers work. Hum­boldt State Uni­ver­sity is ded­i­cated to pro­vid­ing a valu­able learn­ing expe­ri­ence, cov­er­ing con­tem­po­rary top­ics. In response to ongo­ing input from past Man­age­ment Course par­tic­i­pants, P.O.S.T. con­sul­tants and lead­ers in the field of law enforce­ment, we con­tinue to refine our pro­gram. Accord­ingly, we believe that you’ll find the HSU Man­age­ment Course to be prac­ti­cal, rel­e­vant and interactive.

All ses­sions will be hosted at the Lake Natoma Inn in Fol­som. We’ve care­fully selected a prop­erty that pro­vides pro­fes­sional ameni­ties to make your expe­ri­ence even more enjoy­able. We believe that this site will pro­vide a very com­fort­able envi­ron­ment, allow­ing you to get the most out of this impor­tant train­ing opportunity.

I am con­fi­dent that you’ll find our course to be very worth­while for your pro­fes­sional growth. I hope that this web­site will answer some of your ques­tions about our pro­gram, but call us should you need any addi­tional infor­ma­tion. To con­tact me or to reserve your space, call (707) 826‑3731. I look for­ward to your participation.
