The Recruit Training Instructors prepare those seeking a career in law enforcement with the fundamentals of police service. The Professional Training Instructors provide continuing education opportunities to further skills and career abilities. The Leadership Academy provides a path for lifelong learners to enhance their skills as core leaders, not only in the law enforcement arena, but in all areas of life. The Drivers Training hones the skills of public servants in the areas of low speed and emergency vehicle operation. The Firearms Instructors provide recruit training, as well as continuing education training.

The cost for this training will be $75.00 for an 8-hour block, or $150.00 for a 16-hour block of P.O.S.T. certified training. In addition to the “In-Service Training”, the academy training catalog will offer continuing education P.O.S.T. certified training.
