Designed and offered in partnership with the Delaware State Police Training Academy, LEO is an admissions program that provides the education and training to be a competitive applicant for the Delaware State Police or a municipal police agency. Theory and lab courses are taught by certified police instructors.

If accepted for employment, graduates of the program will have an advantage by having experiences a quasi-police academy setting through the LEO program’s culminating course, the Law Enforcement Practicum. They may also be eligible to attend a shortened version of the police academy, rather than the standard 22-week course of study.
