The Ninth Annual Kentucky Law Enforcement Explorer Academy (KLEEA) was held this past summer, Monday, June 8th through Saturday, June 13th on the campus of Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, Kentucky.

The academy’s goal is to give law enforcement explorers an introduction of how a law enforcement training academy operates as well as teaching them basic law enforcement skills that would help give them an insight into making a career decision. The academy will be attended by youth from all over the Commonwealth as well as surrounding states between the ages of 14 – 21.

Participants will go through a week-long program where they will receive a first hand – behind the scenes look at law enforcement. They will experience what is involved in being a law enforcement officer through classroom presentations, simulations and hands-on scenarios. The six day academy will introduce first and second year explorers to topics such as: Bomb Threat Response, Crime Scene Search, Crisis Negotiation, NRA Basic Pistol Course, Officer Down Emergency First Aid, Traffic Accident Investigation, driving simulator, daily physical training, Defensive Tactics, drill and ceremony, firearms simulator, and familiarization with the Kentucky Peace Officers Professional Standards (POPS) physical training test. An advanced academy for third year and senior explorers will expose them to topics such as: Advanced Defensive Tactics, Criminal Investigations, Drug and Gang Awareness/Identification, Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Interview & Interrogation, NRA Basic Shotgun Course, Surveillance and Warrants.

This year through the generous support of our primary sponsors, the Louisville Metro Police Foundation and Kosair Charities , our host agency, the Louisville Metro Police Department and through a partnership with Campbellsville University , we are able to offer this six day academy including housing and all meals for $150.00 for each participant.
