Presentation on the High-Country Training Academy
Share information on the High-Country Police Training Academy (HCTA) that is being run in partnership with the Flagstaff Police Department (FPD), Northern Arizona University Police Department (NAUPD), Coconino County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) and the Coconino Community College (CCC).
In 2021, partnering agencies and Coconino Community College began more serious conversations on the opportunity to train our local law enforcement officers in Flagstaff, instead of sending them to academies throughout the state.   Coconino Community College was able to provide a classroom and a physical fitness room, along with offices for the staff assigned to the academy.   Coconino Community College was also able to hire an administrative assistant and provide reimbursement for the sergeant who supervises the staff running the academy.   Local agencies and some community members provided the class instructors and materials.  Agency representatives created the lesson plans, curriculum, which passed the audit and site inspections by the Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board.
The first High Country Training Academy class started on October 3, 2022.   The academy consists of 832 hours of instruction, including topics such as defensive tactics, emergency driving, firearms, laws and ordinances, and communication.   The class started with 12 recruits and nine passed all their tests and made it to graduation, which was held on Friday, February 24th, 2023, at Flagstaff City Hall.   The recruit officers and deputies will now be going through field training with their respective agencies for another five months before being assigned to solo patrol.
