Lake Region State College will hold its Fall Peace Officer Training graduation December 16th at 1:00 pm in Robert Fawcett Auditorium. Seventeen graduates are set to graduate from the peace officer academy.
The college began training police officers in 1987. Since that time, the college has produced more than 1,000 license-eligible graduates that have been hired by 116 different North Dakota law enforcement agencies.
Lake Region State College offers its one-semester peace officer training program in Devils Lake each fall and spring. The college has conducted a summer academy in Fargo since 2002 with the cooperation of the Fargo Police Department. A similar partnership between LRSC and the Grand Forks Police Department created an academy in Grand Forks, which ran its first academy summer 2010.
