The Law Enforcement Training Program provides classroom, laboratory and cadet practicum instruction enabling students to enter the general field of law enforcement.
The Law Enforcement Program is designed to prepare graduates to enter the law enforcement field. The Law Enforcement Program has been duly approved by the Idaho Police Officers Standards and Training (POST) Council, thus eliminating the graduates' need to attend the basic police academy before taking the certification exam.
Because the Law Enforcement Program is driven by POST standards for certification into the law enforcement field, applicants to the program must meet POST standards for admission. These admission standards include a background check into the applicants' criminal, driving and psychological record. Applicants must meet the general ISU School of Applied Technology requirements for entry into the first semester's course of studies. Prerequisite for entry into the second semester of training (LAWE 193 and 194) is successful completion of LAWE 100, 191 and 192 and acceptance into the cadet practicum by the program's Advisory Committee Board. This board is composed of participating agency representatives and applies the minimum standards for employment as listed by the Idaho Police Officers Standards and Training (POST) Council.
Each block of study must be successfully completed with a minimum grade point of 2.0 in each segment of a block; a grade point of less than 2.0 in any segment will be the grade of the entire block of study. The blocks are taken in progressive order with a grade of C or better as a prerequisite for continuation.
The following blocks are required for a certificate:
