We have been working to ensure our training lines up with the university's vision and values. Humboldt is committed to student success. UPD officers are required to complete 24 hours of POST training every two years. At UPD we want to go above and beyond the state required minimum hours. For more information on POST please use the link below.

About Us (

We want to be balanced with our training. For every hour we spend on firearms or the use of force, we want to spend an equal amount of time on topics related to the equitable treatment of all. Some of the trainings officers will attend in summer/fall of 2021 include the following:

  • Diversity Equity and Inclusion training facilitated by ODEI

  • On-going training facilitated by the North Coast Rape Crisis Team

  • De-escalation and Reasonable Use of Force

  • Crisis Intervention Training

  • Bias Awareness in Policing
