Law Enforcement Graduation

MDCC graduates law enforcement professionals

The next generation of law enforcement professionals recently graduated from Mississippi Delta Community College’s Law Enforcement Training Academy on the college’s Moorhead, Miss., campus.

“This was a great class,” says Law Enforcement Training Academy Director Amy Vandiver. “Each individual not only graduated with a law enforcement certification, but also with 22 college credit hours.”

Mississippi Delta Community College is proud to host law enforcement training for the officers of the great state of Mississippi. Our Law Enforcement Training Academy, more commonly known as LETA, is accelerating by leaps and bounds. In an effort to produce more efficient and safety conscious officers, we offer our cadets a twelve-week training regimen including physical fitness examinations, firearms certification and classroom training. In addition to the mandatory 12-week training course, LETA also offers advanced training to police officers.

Training for the Academy’s next class will begin August 17, and applications are currently being accepted. Prior military members are accepted and can use their G.I. Bill benefits to pay for their tuition. Also, individuals not currently employed by an agency may still apply through the self-sponsor option.

Located on MDCC’s Moorhead, Miss., campus, the Law Enforcement Training Academy (LETA) is a Class I State Academy accredited by the Mississippi Board on Law Enforcement Officers' Standards and Training to offer all levels of training to law enforcement officers from the Delta region of Mississippi and from across the state.
