Lesson plans meet the requirements of the Louisiana Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Council. In conjunction with offering what is required, extensive elective courses which better prepare officers for their career are taught. This training is not limited to within our jurisdiction. However, agencies from around the state send their upcoming Law Enforcement Officers through this course.
