Beginning Basic Class 2014-A, the number of Basic Police Training Courses will be reduced to three classes per year.
The Administration feels that this will streamline our operational efficiency while allowing more time to adequately conduct and/or attend in-service training courses and allow for more in-depth specialized training to be offered.
To be eligible for training at ALETA, you must be a law enforcement officer employed by an Arkansas Law Enforcement Agency.
The Arkansas Basic Police Training Course curriculum is mandated by state laws and guided by various rules and regulations and administrative procedures. This thirteen (13) week course provides instruction and practical application in the following areas of law enforcement: criminal investigation, accident investigation, firearms, non deadly defensive tactics, officer safety techniques, traffic law, criminal law, civil liability and other legal aspects of law enforcement, first aid, crime prevention, crisis intervention, cultural diversity, and other general areas of importance to officers beginning their career. This course is offered three (3) times yearly at the Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy only, with limited enrollment. (Regulation 1005, Specification S-9)
