About

The Law Enforcement Academy at the Technical College of the Rockies has been in Delta, Colorado since 1973. The school has gone through many names over those years but the dedication to providing a superior educational experience has not. After successful completion of TCR’s Law Enforcement Academy, students will be eligible to take the State POST (Police Officer’s Standards and Training) exam. Only after passing this exam will a student be eligible to work in Colorado Law Enforcement. Students may apply to be a police officer, deputy sheriff, or town marshal. The Academy is approximately four months long depending on which semester you attend. During that time, you will be taught 52 different academic topics related to modern policing and three skills topics; Arrest Control, Law Enforcement Driving, and Firearms.
