The next Lorain County Community College Police Training Academy begins in April of 2009 for those interested in a law enforcement career. The academy trains recruits to become basic patrol officers.  Registration for the next class is now in progress.

Up to 28 recruits per class can be accommodated in the LCCC Police Training Academy. Individuals can apply to the academy two ways: as a sponsored recruit by a local police department, or through open enrollment for those with no affiliation to a police department.

Those who are seeking entrance through open enrollment should contact the Academy immediately as their enrollment package must be completed before admittance to the Academy. All applicants must also meet physical conditioning standards before entering the Academy.

Recruits will go through 650 hours of training during the 16-week, full-time program. The training will cover all areas that are mandated by the Ohio Police Officers Training Commission (OPOTC), which oversees police training in Ohio. These areas are: physical conditioning, administration, legal, diversity/human relations, firearms, driving, subject control, first aid, patrol, civil disorders, traffic and investigation.

Upon successful completion of the Police Training Academy, graduates will be awarded certificates that allow them to take the Ohio Peace Officers Examination.

LCCC will award 12 hours of equivalent Criminal Justice class credit to those candidates that successfully complete the Police Training Academy.

The tuition for the Police Training Academy is approximately $4,000 for open enrollment students. This tuition includes all required firearms ammunition, copies of the Ohio Revised Criminal and Traffic Code as well as other classroom reference material.  In addition, a partial uniform consisting of LCCCPTA shirts, hats and physical conditioning shorts will be provided. Students must provide their own handguns, duty gear (duty belt holsters, handcuffs etc.), ear and eye protection, as well as uniform pants and black law enforcement style shoes or boots.

The course of instruction is non-credit and therefore does not qualify for traditional financial aid; however, candidates may qualify for a Career Training Loan through Sallie Mae along with local financial institutional support or an Incentive Award through the college.

To meet the basic qualifications as dictated by the OPOTC and the LCCC Police Training Academy, applicants must:

  • Be a citizen of the United States.
  • Be 21 years of age or reach that age by the conclusion of the academy.
  • Be a high school graduate or equivalent (GED)
  • Possess a valid Ohio Driver’s License.
  • Be free from any felony convictions.
