Address: 4190 Aumsville Hwy. SE, Salem 97317
Phone: 503-378-2100
Web: www.oregon.gov/DPSST/BD/Pages/index.aspx

Duties and Responsibilities: In addition to statutes set by the Oregon Legislature, DPSST’s overall mission is guided by the 24-member Board on Public Safety Standards and Training and five discipline-specific public safety policy committees. Membership of the board is outlined in ORS and provides a comprehensive representation of the constituent base.


The board and committees are integrally involved in setting standards for employment, training and certification or licensure of public safety professionals, fire service professionals, private security professionals, private investigators and polygraph examiners. Board and committee meetings are held quarterly to review standards and curriculum, administrative rule changes, requests for waivers of the standards and cases addressing the denial or revocation of certification or licensure. In addition, the board and committees assist DPSST in setting the agency’s goals for the future through guidance and input regarding policy direction and strategic planning.
