Firearms Survey

The Commission on Correctional Peace Officer Standards and Training (CPOST) is charged to approve standards of training in the carrying and use of firearms for correctional peace officers for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.  We are conducting a national survey of Corrections Departments to review current policies and procedures and assess national “best practices.”

In that regard, we are requesting that your agency complete the attached survey and forward it to our researchers at

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide us with this research project.  Should you be interested, upon completion and approval by our Commissioners, a data extract will be available on our website or can be sent directly via email upon request.
