Law Enforcement Training

Law enforcement cadets

Program Overview

Law Enforcement Academy and short-term training courses are for both local officers and officers statewide.

The Law Enforcement Academy is a full-time program that trains pre-service recruits that are either putting themselves through the academy or are employed by a law enforcement agency and being sponsored by that agency. A series of week-long courses are offered each semester that train both local officers and attract officers from around California. This training helps the officers to maintain the required continuing professional education mandated by the state. The program also contracts with law enforcement agencies to cosponsor training locally.
