Twenty-two students graduated from Central Lakes College’s Law Enforcement Skills program on Friday.
These men and women have completed two years of general education and Criminal Justice studies, and now have been through an intense eight-week law enforcement training program. In the Skills training program, they received extensive training in communication tactics/techniques, use of force, firearms, and patrol practicals by various active law enforcement professionals. Agencies such as the Minnesota State Patrol, Minnesota DNR, Brainerd Police, Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office, Breezy Point Police, Pequot Lakes Police, Morrison County Sheriff’s Office, Little Falls Police, and Stearns County Sheriff’s Office have dedicated their time and knowledge to mentor the next generation of law enforcement professionals.
“The training these cadets received is the foundation on which we hope to bring community and peace officers together as one,” said Dave Davis, CLC Law Enforcement Skills Coordinator. “The PPOE academic and skills program train students in compassion and ethics to support our community and be the elite officers each community cherishes to attain. We at CLC take pride in the outcome of our students and the achievements they will make in their career after leaving CLC.”
