Have you thought about becoming a police officer? Do you desire to make a difference by protecting others and our homeland? Not sure if you have what it takes or how to enter the process?

You may have heard the terms police academy, basic police school, police recruit school, or regional training academy. In Michigan, all of these terms refer to the same training process. You must complete a Basic Training School that is sanctioned and under contract with the Michigan Commission on Law Enforcement Standards (MCOLES). There are academies throughout the state and Mott Community College is proud to be one of the locations selected to provide this training.
The Mott Community College Law Enforcement Regional Training Academy (LERTA) is under the authority of the Executive Director Theresa Stephens-Lock of the Mott Community College Department of Public Safety. The Department is a full-service police agency.
The home of LERTA is the Mott Community College - Southern Lakes Branch Center located at 2100 W. Thompson Rd, Fenton, MI 48430. The Academy holds two sessions each year, which coincide with the fall and winter semesters.
