The North Louisiana Criminal Justice Academy has started its latest Peace Officers’ Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) class in Plain Dealing.  

This latest class, the 12th since the academy opened in 2009,  consists of 25 recruits from 11 northwest Louisiana law enforcement agencies.  The academy is hosted by the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Over the next 12 weeks, these recruits will train in officer survival skills, academics, weapons qualifications, physical fitness, chemical weapons, and a wide range of other law enforcement issues.  The Sheriff’s Office says the academy features a driving and shooting simulator, a 30-station firing range, a defense tactics training facility, tiered classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, and a rappelling tower.

The 12th academy class consists of recruits from the Bossier, Bienville, Union, Webster, and Winn Parish Sheriff’s Offices and the Bossier City, Arcadia, LSU Health, Minden, Oil City, and Plain Dealing Police Departments.  Two of the participants in this 12th academy class are undergoing refresher training.

“The training we provide is of the highest calibre in order to effectively prepare these men and women to be law enforcement officers,” said Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington.
