    Anyone have a good link to a site that details police training reciprocity between states?

    I'm considering a move to West Virginia, and am wondering how much of my Ohio certification will transfer. I assume I'll have to take some sort of "cousins, sister, lovers" update and possibly a reverse dental exam, but beyond that I'm stymied.

    This is a serious question, even though the above was a joke. WV's Criminal Justice Dept site has an FAQ about this but it is unanswered. Go figure.

    The best thing is to check with the state you plan on moving to. Most of the time each state's LEO certifying agency has information on lateral and out of state transfers. Some states will accept all or part of your training. Other times you may have to attend some sort of abbreviated training course to familiarize yourself with their laws and statutes. Good luck.:supergrin:

    Thanks, I did, the state's website FAQ had no answer even though the question was listed (it's a dead link) and they haven't replied to my e-mails. I don't speak the language so I can't call...

    I should stop with the WV jokes, maybe.

    I've never seen such a site.

    It would be rather difficult to say with any certainty if reciprocity could be maintained for a length of time to make such a site viable; due to changes in regulations, training, standards, waiver exams, etc.

    Even POST states cannot concur with each other.

    Try making phone calls to potential agencies recruiters. I am sure they would know.

    Truer words were never spoken. You must be a consultant for CALEA. ;)

    The best way would be to call the state POST or agencies where you'd like to go. A few years ago I checked NV, OR, and WA.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    I saw such a list posted in POLICE magazine a long long time ago. Not sure if they have updated it since I stopped subscribing a long time ago when they started publishing rehashed feel good basic academy articles to fill in space.

    BTW, CA has no reciprocity with anyone for anything other than driver's licenses. We suck.
