League of Minnesota Cities

Peace officer Accredited TRaining OnLine

The League of Minnesota Cities Insurance Trust (LMCIT), Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust (MCIT), Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association (MCPA) and Minnesota Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) have partnered with Smart Horizons to bring you Peace officer Accredited TRaining OnLine (PATROL).

PATROL is a powerful learning tool for Minnesota law enforcement agencies. Course material is developed through the materials and expertise of current case law, police liability experts, insurance defense counsel, and law enforcement agencies.

Through PATROL, agencies have access to extensive web-based courses that can be accessed at any time from any internet connect. Upon successful completion of each course, one POST credit is earned. Peace officers have access to:

  • A new continuing education course each month, with each focusing on current legal issues and research on important developments impacting Minnesota law enforcement.
  • A three-part series on Use of Force and Deadly Force to help law enforcement agencies meet POST mandates.
  • Seven courses to help agencies meet various OSHA standards.
  • A six-part supervisory and leadership series that will be made available later in 2015.

All courses combined, peace officers can earn up to 28 POST credits each year.

PATROL is only available to Minnesota law enforcement agencies and inactive peace officers. LMCIT and MCIT member agencies pay only $85 per officer per year. Non-member agencies and inactive officers pay $110 per officer per year. Please see the FAQs section for more information or contact Laura Honeck at or 651-281-1280.
