Nineteen 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. This unique program allows students to get in the driver’s seat of new, state-of-the-art squad cars that come with the same software that officers use on the streets today. Students are also trained in firearms, defense tactics, using a Taser, chemical aerosol, radar and using LIDAR.
