The Training Unit is responsible for maintaining all training records for each sworn member of the Department and ensuring compliance with CLEST standards for the state.
We believe in life-long learning and during your career with the Bentonville Police Department you will receive regular in-service training and opportunities to attend training specific to your career goals and assignments.
Training is important to every aspect of police work and we continually update all of our programs to make sure we are implementing the best practices.
