|A Dresden man joined nearly 40 others recently as a graduate of the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. |
Andrew Hackett is among those who are eligible to join the rosters of law enforcement agencies with the recent graduation of the latest Basic Law Enforcement Academy class at Walters State Community College.
The Basic Law Enforcement Academy, held at the college’s Greeneville/Greene County Campus, offers the eight-week training required of all new law enforcement recruits during their first year of employment.
The program is part of the East Tennessee Regional Law Enforcement Academy established at Walters State by the Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission.
It is also part of the college’s Public Safety Center of Emphasis, a designation recognizing its outstanding record in career preparation.
The speaker for the graduation exercises, which were held Sept. 14, was Ian Ward, former Los Angeles police sergeant.
