RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) – Recruits from police agencies across Kentucky have graduated from basic training.
The 33 graduates of Class 510 completed 20 weeks of training last week at the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training facility in Richmond, the agency said in a statement. The program included 800 hours of instruction, including law offenses and procedures, vehicle operations, firearms, investigations and first aid.
The facility provides basic training for police officers, sheriffs’ deputies, university police, airport police and others.
Four recruits also graduated with associate’s degrees, which are earned online through a partnership with Bluegrass Community and Technical College.
The Department of Criminal Justice Training is located on Eastern Kentucky University’s campus.
