The Orange Police Department's Personnel and Training Unit is responsible for the hiring, recruitment, training and equipment for all employees. The unit is comprised of a sergeant, training manager, training coordinator, police clerk, and four background investigators. Part of their duties consist of providing ongoing training covering a variety of topics and meeting the state regulations required by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training. Continuous training is a necessity of law enforcement personnel to stay current with ever changing situations as well as meeting and exceeding state standards. The agency regularly engages in recruiting efforts and relentlessly pursues hiring qualified individuals. Thorough background investigations are completed on prospective employees in an effort to maintain a professional decorum and a positive representation of our law enforcement community.
