Twenty-one students graduated from the Maine Criminal Justice Academy’s Law Enforcement Pre-Service Program, also known as the “100-Hour course,” held on the campus of the University of Maine at Fort Kent.
Members of the graduation class are pictured here following their graduation ceremony on Wednesday, May 25, along with their instructors and personnel from local and regional law enforcement agencies.
The “100-hour course” is required by the state of Maine as the minimum level of training for any part-time or reserve law enforcement officer. The course normally is offered at the Academy, located in Vassalboro, and at other sites around the state. Over the past six years, 116 students have graduated from the program held at UMFK.
