A complete list of training topics and dates is available below based on the month the training will be offered. All available training sessions will appear for that specific month. Click on the class links to view specific information about each class, including time, location and CEU credits.
Note: The CEU list is constantly under review and revision. This is because many of our instructors are active-duty law enforcement officers and are occasionally called to other responsibilities. These classes will be held as scheduled pending instructor availability. For this reason, you are cautioned to call the Academy prior to your training to assure there has not been a change.
We no longer offer a yearly contract for CE's. Instead we are offering block classes at least once per year. These block classes offer every CE needed to complete the 48 hour CE requirement.
Call 573-290-5110 to sign up for a class. A maximum of five officers will be accepted per class during our regular Academy, so call early.
