Our Regional P.O.S.T. Training Academy is housed at the Law Enforcement Complex in Thibodaux and is responsible for basic law enforcement training for new law enforcement officers. Lesson plans must meet the requirements of the Louisiana Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.) Council.
Successful completion of the Academy can be presented for potential credit toward an undergraduate degree at some Louisiana two- and four-year colleges. It is up to the student to check with each individual institution.
Two daytime academy classes are held annually, as well as one night academy. We also held several Level 3 academies throughout the year. Aspiring officers from around the state attend each session, and the academy staff also conducts recertifications for LPSO deputies and other local agencies.
