Fairbanks, Alaska—Seventeen students will graduate from the 22nd session of the UAF Community and Technical College Law Enforcement Academy, Wednesday, May 9, at 1 p.m. at the Alaska Centennial Center for the Arts in Pioneer Park.

The graduation marks the culmination of the 13-week academy, which is offered twice a year. The academy is designed to provide students with basic police training, which enables them to receive the Alaska Police Standards Certification. The certification makes them eligible for employment with the 21 state law enforcement agencies or 43 municipal police departments within Alaska.

This session’s students come from all over Alaska and the Lower 48 including Ohio, Oklahoma and Washington. The class speaker is Erich Reed with the North Slope Borough Police Department.

The ceremony brings the total number of academy graduates to 375 since August 2001. Graduates from the program have gone on to become Park Rangers, Alaska State Troopers, Commercial Motor Vehicle Enforcement, pipeline security, private security and police officers.

The next session of the academy begins August 13, 2012; applications are currently being accepted.
