Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center announces March graduates

YODER — Barry Grissom, U.S. attorney for the District of Kansas, congratulated 58 new law enforcement officers during their graduation from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center on March 4.

The 58 new officers were members of the 211th basic training class at the center. Located one mile west and one mile south of Yoder, near Hutchinson, the center is a division of University of Kansas Continuing Education.

The graduates, who began their training Nov. 8, represented 42 municipal, county and state law enforcement agencies from across Kansas.

Graduates receive certificates of course completion and Kansas law enforcement certification from the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers’ Standards and Training, the state’s law enforcement licensing authority. The training course fulfills the state requirement for law enforcement training. Classroom lectures and hands-on applications help train officers to solve the increasingly complex problems they face in the line of duty.

Established by the Kansas Legislature in 1968, the center trains the majority of municipal, county and state law enforcement officers in Kansas and oversees the training of the remaining officers at seven authorized and certified academy programs operated by local law enforcement agencies and the Kansas Highway Patrol.

About 350 officers enroll annually in the 14-week basic training program. In 2009, the center offered continuing education and specialized training to more than 5,600 Kansas officers. Funding for the training center is generated from court docket fees from municipal and state courts. No funds from the state’s general revenue are used to operate the center.

Graduates who granted permission to release their names are listed below by agency, rank, agency location and hometown if different than agency location. To see more data, use scroll bar or left and right arrow keys.
