Arkansas police academy to become state’s next academy
Arkansas police academies will become the state’s new police acadams, joining the police acadias in New York, New Jersey and Maryland.
The new academies, the first of which is in Little Rock, are expected to begin training officers next month.
The Arkansas Police Academy, for example, will begin training next month in Little Allen, the city where the academy is located.
The academy will have a new name and logo and will begin classes at a new location.
The Arkansas Academy of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice is the state division of the Arkansas Police Department, the state agency that runs police acadms in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
The state is one of eight in the U.S. that has its own academy, along with New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Denver and Austin.
Arkansas police academy will be led by police chief, chief executive officer and academy president John SwannSource: Fox News
