Police academy starting up

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - If you have what it takes to be in law enforcement, well good news for you. Police academy classes are starting Monday at Louisiana Delta Community College. Last year, the North Delta Law Enforcement planning district voted for the college to take over operations of the academy. This makes Delta the only community college in the state to operate a police academy. Chancellor Barbara Hanson says this is just the beginning.

" It's a credit program, but a lot of folks that enter into law enforcement," Hanson said. "They've got some time under their belt if they decide they want to specialize or receive additional training."

North Delta Law Enforcement district will work with the college to make sure programming and operations meet the needs of the region.
