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)

      ALETA is excited to announce our 3rd annual Women behind the Badge class scheduled for April 25-29, 2016. This year we have decided to shake things up a bit and concentrate on range time and improving our overall firearms skills! Let’s face it….there’s no way possible to get too much range time, right? From handgun to patrol rifles and on to shotguns, the week will be full of sunshine (we hope) and flying brass! 
      The most exciting part of this year’s class has to be our special guest instructor, Mr. Tom Long. Just a little background information for those of you who might not know Tom…..
       
      Tom Long has over 35 years of law enforcement experience which includes; 26 years as Police Chief of Southaven Mississippi, SWAT instructor, firearm’s instructor at John Shaw’s  Mid-South Shooting Institute, and past president of Mississippi Tactical Officers Association. He is a recognized law enforcement expert in police firearms, pursuits, policy and procedure in local, state and federal court levels. As part of an advanced teaching cadre or as an individual instructor, Tom has taught thousands of military Special Forces personnel and Federal, State and local law enforcement officers from around the world.
      In 1993 Tom began the Tactical Officer Survival School in an effort to bring the kind of training to local law enforcement that had only been available to an elite few.  His book, Advanced Combat Survival Shooting is a compilation of lessons and techniques he developed through the years to improve student s’ shooting abilities.
      Tom Long is an excellent instructor with plenty of firearm expertise to share!
       
      We will also focus on the importance of weapons retention drills and spend time training with our Milo and Virtra 300 systems.
       
      Class size is limited to 30 officers. Deadline for enrollment is March 25, 2016.
       
      Individuals will be selected and notified by April 1st
       
       
       ALETA looks forward to another great week of training with our female law enforcement officers!

      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.
