Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center announces March graduates

HUTCHINSON -- Fifty-four graduates were honored March 4 in ceremonies at the Kansas State Fairgrounds after completing a basic training program at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC) near Hutchinson. Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius spoke at the commencement exercises.

The graduates, who began their 14-week training Nov. 8, represent 40 municipal, county and state enforcement agencies. They received certificates for course completion and certification from the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers' Standards and Training. The course fulfills a state-mandated requirement for law enforcement training.

The KLETC is a unit of University of Kansas Continuing Education. Established in 1968 as the central law enforcement training facility for the state, it is at a former naval air station near Yoder in southern Reno County.

KLETC directly trains the majority of municipal, county, state and tribal law enforcement officers in Kansas and oversees the training of the remaining officers at seven certified academy programs operated by local law enforcement agencies and the Kansas Highway Patrol.

About 350 officers go through the 14-week basic training program annually at the center, which offered continuing education and specialized training to more than 2,500 Kansas officers last year. Funding is generated from court docket fees from municipal and state courts.

Graduates, their hometowns, positions and agencies listed by county are listed below.

Kansas counties: Allen, Atchison, Barton, Bourbon, Butler, Clay, Cowley, Crawford, Douglas, Elllis, Finney, Ford, Graham, Kiowa, Labette, Leavenworth, Lyon, Marion, Montgomery, Morris, Osborne, Pottawatomie, Reno, Riley, Scott, Sedgwick, Seward, Shawnee, Wilson and Wyandotte.
