The Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board (AZ POST) establishes rules and regulations governing the conduct of all business coming before the board. It prescribes minimum qualifications for officers appointed to enforce the laws of the state and recommends curricula for advanced courses and seminars for law enforcement training in universities, colleges and junior colleges in conjunction with the governing body of the educational institutions.

AZ POST also determines whether political state subdivisions are adhering to the standards for recruitment and training of law enforcement personnel. It approves a state correctional officer training curriculum and establishes minimum standards for correctional officers.

Moreover, AZ POST approves allocations from the Peace Officers Training Fund to provide law enforcement training and grants to cities and counties for law enforcement training.

AZ POST also provides training and related services to assist state, tribal and local law enforcement agencies to better serve the public.
