The KU Alumni Association periodically hosts congratulatory cookouts for cadets graduating from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center near Hutchinson. Nearly 80 new officers were in attendance as they completed their 14-week, 560-hour program at the center, which is a division of KU Continuing Education.
The KLETC was created in 1968 and is the central headquarters for all law enforcement training in Kansas. The 173-acre campus has 15 buildings, a 16-station firearms range and a 1.78-mile emergency vehicle operations driver training facility.
“When people think of KU,” says Director Ed Pavey, “they think of the Lawrence campus, or the Edwards Campus in Overland Park, or the Med Center campuses in KC or Wichita, not KLETC in Yoder. The involvement of the KU Alumni Association in hosting these barbecue dinners is truly appreciated and sends a strong signal of the KU Alumni Association’s support of KLETC.”
Congratulations to the new graduates! (View photos of the event above, or view them on Flickr.)
