NLETC Director’s Message
Welcome to the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center. Our campus is co-located with the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy on the north side of Grand Island, adjacent to the Central Nebraska Regional Airport.
We invite you to browse our website and to consider a career in Nebraska law enforcement. Information regarding qualifications to becoming a certified Nebraska officer can be found under the tab, Law Enforcement Certification Standards. Information about the various ways you can attend our academy can be found under the tab, Academy Admission Information. Please contact us if you have more questions. We are looking for motivated and service oriented people to join our profession. Law enforcement is an exciting and rewarding career!
The 101st Nebraska Legislature approved continued funding for mandated training of officers who are employed by Nebraska municipal or county governments with LB 844. As has been done in the past, Nebraska municipalities and counties will continue to send officers to mandated training tuition-free due to the LEIF funding mechanism and a Nebraska general fund appropriation. This continued State support saves local tax dollars and assures Nebraskans that professionally trained law enforcement officers will continue to be trained and certified at the NLETC in order to meet their communities' law enforcement needs.
Regardless of department size, our citizens expect the best from each and everyone who wears the badge of Nebraska Law Enforcement. It is an honor to be of service to the citizens of the State of Nebraska.
Please contact me if you have questions regarding the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center or joining our profession.
