A measure in the Governor’s proposed criminal justice package for the regular session seeks to improve police training. Baton Rouge Representative Ted James authored the bill that strengthens requirements for the Council on Peace Officer Standards and Training, or POST. James says this bill requires all office to complete 400 hours of this training, with an additional 20 hours annually.
