Cadet Law Enforcement Academy
The Cadet Law Enforcement Academy, co-sponsored by the Kansas American Legion, Auxiliary and Kansas Highway Patrol will be held at the Highway Patrol Training Center in Salina, June 10-15, 2018. Deadline for applications is March 31st and the $300 sponsor fee and $50 applicant fee must accompany the application. Information for the Cadet Law Enforcement program and student applications were mailed in early December to all American Legion Posts, Auxiliary Units, and high schools throughout the state.
CLEA is not a recruitment device for law enforcement. Instead it offers high school juniors the opportunity to gain knowledge regarding training and responsibilities of all law enforcement officials. Upon graduation students should better understand, respect and appreciate law enforcement personnel at all levels.
To qualify for the Academy, applicants must be High School Juniors and must have a "C+" average scholastically for Sophomore and first semester of their Junior year, and be physically able to participate in all activities. Qualified instructors from the Highway Patrol, KBI, FBI and other law enforcement agencies are used throughout the week of instruction.
