Indiana University Bloomington students interested in social justice, safety communication, or careers in fields of law enforcement, emergency & safety management or public health should stop by the call-out meeting Tuesday for IU Public Safety Partners, held at 6:30 p.m. at the IMU in State Room East.
The 2016 IU Police Academy kicked off on Monday by breaking records. This will be the first year that each of the eight Indiana University campuses has student representatives. It is the largest academy class with a whopping 42 cadets, and contains the largest number of women — 11 — a figure that grows each year as women continue to establish a presence in law enforcement.
Thirty-seven Indiana University students are at a pivotal point in their college careers and ambitions to work in law enforcement. This week they began the IU Police Academy as cadets. In August, if all goes well with their various courses, they will graduate from the academy as sworn law enforcement officers. “If they successfully complete the IU Police Academy, they will have their academic degree, Indiana Law Enforcement Certification and job experience when they graduate from IU.”
