Twenty-five recruits from seven law enforcement agencies in northwest
Louisiana are training hard, as part of Class 008 of
the North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy in Plain Dealing.
Recruits gather in formation outside of the academy training facility.
The 12-week Peace Officer Standards Training (P.O.S.T.) regimen includes training in
weapons, physical fitness, officer survival, active shooter, driving and a
legal curriculum. This is the eighth academy class for NLCJA provided by the
Bossier Sheriff's Office; the first class graduated in May 2009.
Sgt. Clint Robins of NLCJA motivates recruit Russell Cummings of the Webster Parish Sheriff's Office.
Capt. Joey Cleveland, NLCJA director, instructs Class 008.
