About this Program

The Law Enforcement Skills program at Alexandria Technical & Community College is designed to give the prospective peace officer the hands-on skills training necessary to qualify for licensure in Minnesota and is a natural progression of the training received from academic studies. Instructors draw from years of practical law enforcement street experience and focus on developing skills which are tactically safe and realistic. The mission of the training is to expose students to the maximum amount of training possible in the practical aspects of law enforcement. This could very well be the most demanding portion of the law enforcement career preparation process.
