Story by Officer Natalie Hall, CPD

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Six officers from the Clarksville Police Department (CPD) graduated from 10 weeks of training sat the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy (TLETA).

Along with the success of graduating, out of 87 students from multiple law enforcement agencies, four of the six officers were among the top 10 graduates overall and three of the six officers were added to the Physical Training Wall.

We want to congratulate all these officers for successfully graduating the academy and welcome them into 14 weeks of Field Training. Officers straight out of Academy are trained by experienced Field Training Officers before they go out on their own.
