My youngest son Klay went to this Academy in 2012. The folks that run this Academy do a great job at training Officers. Mr. Blankenship is the Director of the Academy and wants to turn out quality people for future work in Police Agencies.
Yesterday I went to Grayson College where the Academy is located. It is a great campus and the people I have met are all friendly. I was able to talk with one of the Campus Police Officers and give him a Badges & Boots Gospel tract. He happens to live in Whitesboro, Texas also. He was a graduate of the Academy in 2012.
If you know someone who is interested in a career in Law Enforcement this would be a great Academy to recommend.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, 12/2007: “Job opportunities in most local police departments will be excellent for qualified individuals, while competition is expected for jobs in State and Federal agencies. Average employment growth is expected. Employment of police and detectives is expected to grow 11 percent over the 2006-16 decade, a more security-conscious society and population growth will contribute to the increasing demand for police services. Overall opportunities in local police departments will be excellent for individuals who meet the psychological, personal, and physical qualifications. In addition to openings from employment growth, many openings will be created by the need to replace workers who retire and those who leave local agencies for Federal jobs and private sector security jobs.”
