Nevada County Sheriff Appointed to POST Commission

Nevada County Sheriff Shannan Moon was appointed by Gov. Gavin Newsom to the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) on September 12. The 64-year-old commission develops selection and training standards for all law enforcement in California. 

Moon will serve on the commission for the next three years. He'll join 17 other members, including Mono County Sheriff Ingrid Braun, Monterey County Sheriff Tina Nieto, and Sacramento County Sheriff Jim Cooper.

“I am humbled and honored to be appointed the newest POST Commissioner,” said Sheriff Moon. “This isn’t just me or the Sheriff’s Office having a voice where police policy is concerned but having a voice for our entire community and a voice in determining the future of public safety standards statewide.”

“Law enforcement best practices, trainings and protocol have changed through the years and the policy decisions we make now will impact everyday lives statewide,” said Sheriff Moon. “This is a unique and exciting opportunity to affect change, to create broader impact outside of our county lines. It’s critical that we continue to listen to our communities—what’s working, what’s not—to ultimately increase public safety.”
