UI Public Safety officer completes training through Iowa Law Enforcement
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- James C. Crockett, an officer with the University
of Iowa department of public safety, completed training through the Iowa
Law Enforcement Academy in Des Moines last November.
The Law Enforcement Academy training is a 12-week program that includes
instruction in procedures related to arrests, criminal investigations,
search and seizure, traffic control, use of force, and dealing with drunken
drivers. All law enforcement officers in the State of Iowa are required
to complete the training program before they can assume their duties on
a permanent basis.
In addition to the Academy's training program, Crockett also completed
a four-month field officer training program required by the UI department
of public safety.
