Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center Graduates 301st Basic Training Class
Commencement speaker Interim Chief Livingston, joined by class coordinator Gary Warner, greets members of the 301st basic training class.
Twenty new law enforcement officers graduated from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC) on November 11, 2022 in a ceremony held in KLETC’s Integrity Auditorium.
Gary Warner, class coordinator for the 301st basic training class, expressed his appreciation for the graduates and acknowledged the many challenges they overcame throughout their training.
Commencement speaker, Interim Wichita Police Chief Troy Livingston, shared some advice with the graduates. “Be leaders. By stepping up to serve your communities you are already leaders.” Livingston described good leaders as possessing self-awareness, garnering credibility, and ones who exhibit humility. “You have joined an exceptional profession, and I like to call it the greatest show on earth.”
Under the authority of Executive Director Beck, graduates received certificates attesting to the satisfactory completion of a full-time basic course of instruction, and certification as Kansas law enforcement officers from the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers’ Standards and Training, the state’s law enforcement licensing authority.
