The Police Standards Advisory Council serves the Nebraska Crime Commission by being responsible for establishing the standards, rules and training governing the certification of law enforcement officers in Nebraska. The Council is responsible for the revocation of law enforcement certificates of officers who have failed to meet such requirements.

Council members are appointed by the Governor to four year terms. The Council consists of nine voting members as set forth in Neb. Rev 81-1407. Eight of the voting members are law enforcement professionals and one member is a citizen at large or a member of the Jail Standards Board. Meetings are normally held the third Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. at the Training Center.
