Ongoing Sworn Training

The Portland Police Bureau operates an annual in-service for sworn personnel to refresh their skills and train on the latest law enforcement tactics, techniques and strategies. Our goal is to continually develop the best trained police officers to safely and effectively meet the needs of Portland citizens.  On average, Portland officers participate in 30 hours of in-service training per year, exceeding State of Oregon requirements. The Training Division also offers additional courses related to specialized skills such as All-Terrain Vehicles, Bicycles, and Advanced Active Shooter.
