Training Schedule

 
 

 

 
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)

      Tactical EVOC is a course for experienced officers to enhance their ability to use their patrol vehicle to not only arrive at ongoing critical incidents but to use their vehicle as a mobile tactical platform. The course will demonstrate the use of the vehicle not only as a platform from which to deploy personnel and weapons but how the vehicle can be used for cover and as a weapon itself.  Practical exercises will explore tactical positioning, escape and evasion, blockades, shooting from the vehicle, and the effects of various calibers on the vehicle when used as cover. Scenario based practicals will include (but not limited to) traffic stops and active shooter situations.
       
      This course is NOT open to individuals who have no previous Law Enforcement Basic EVOC training through ALETA or equivalent training through another agency. Any questions about the suitability of previous training with another agency should be directed to ALETA with supporting documentation.
       
      A Refresher EVOC course will be offered for officers who have previously undergone approved EVOC training as described above more than 2 years prior to the Tactical EVOC course date. Refresher EVOC will be offered immediately before the Tactical EVOC course and it is recommended that anyone taking the Tactical EVOC course also take the Refresher EVOC Course.
       
      The Refresher EVOC course is not a substitute for Basic EVOC Training.
