2024 Continuing Professional Training

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy launched a $15 million pilot program to help fund continuing professional training (CPT) for law enforcement officers in 2022, per the biennial operating budget passed by the Ohio General Assembly in summer 2021. That program was extended into 2024 with additional funding by the General Assembly.

Sworn officers and troopers who graduated from an academy in 2023 or earlier are required to take 24 hours of advanced training in 2024, with the state paying each law enforcement agency up to 100% of those officers’ salaries while they take the training.
