Constables' Education and Training Board

The Commission on Crime and Delinquency, through its Bureau of Training Services, trains and certifies the Commonwealth's elected and appointed constables and deputy constables.  Training consists of basic and firearms education, which leads to certification to perform judicial duties and receive payment.  Annual in-service training is required to maintain certification.

A new course of fire and target will be implemented for the 2010 Constables' Firearms Training classes. The new course of fire will include the use of barricades; the requirements to move to cover; and the use of verbal challenges in each stage. The dual phase qualification has been retained, but will be using the more simplified NRA TQ-19 center mass target. Below are videos highlighting both phases of the new course of fire for firearms qualification and a video showing the 360 degree scan.
