The POST Robert Presley Institute of Criminal Investigation (ICI)
is designed to improve the effectiveness of individual investigators through training.
The ICI is structured to include a Core Course, eleven Foundation Specialty Courses, and related electives. The Core Course includes instruction in tasks performed by all investigators, regardless of assignment, while Foundation Specialty Courses include instruction on the different specialty assignments that detectives find themselves. Electives provide instruction which support the specialty chosen.
The ICI program will be informative to all investigators regardless of experience level. All ICI courses use the adult experience-based techniques of learning. Participants rely on their experience and the experience of others for learning. Learners are challenged through the use of realistic and practical applications. Even the most experienced investigators can learn from their association with others in the class.
ICI courses are open to all full-time investigators or qualified uniformed officers with one year experience conducting follow-up investigations. ICI only requires a firm commitment from both students and their respective agencies that all courses will be completed.
The ICI Core is offered at no cost to students, as long as their agency is eligible for POST reimbursement. Students receive a per diem and will be reimbursed for all travel expenses.
State Center Regional Training Facility offers the Core Course twice a year. Please check the Schedule of Courses
page for dates and times.
