Enforce minimum password policy on Cisco 2960x

Hi

Does anyone know how to enforce a minimum password length on a Cisco 2960x (15.2.6(E1)) current latest IOS

I have tried the below but it comes as unrecognised

Switch(Config)password-policy ?

Switch(Config)security password ?

 

Currently the switches are configured with a local account and with AAA to a TACACS server and I am aware a policy can be enforced on the tacacs server but I also want it enforced locally for the local accounts for security auditing purposes

 

Also when enforcing locally, will it lock out any TACACS account that is already configured but does not meet the minimum length requirement?

 

Thanks

Thanks Colin, So looks like I cannot really enforce a min password policy. The common criteria policy only can be applied to Type 7 passwords whereas in our environment we use Type 9 encryption for local switch passwords.
