The Academy

The Lawrence Police Department conducts an in-house, 26 week Basic Recruit Academy that is held right here in Lawrence, Kansas at the Department's Investigations and Training Center. The academy is a paid, full time assignment. Occasionally the department will conduct lateral transfer academies for individuals who already posess full time law enforcement certification, which are significantly abbreviated.
