The Law Enforcement Academy at Pasco-Hernando State College received a perfect audit for 2011-12 from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). Conducted in December 2013, the FDLE evaluated academy expenditures, recordkeeping and facilities, as well as administrative operations, instruction and curriculum. The report verified the certifications of academy instructors and reviewed certification requirements. The audit determined that all academy operations and instruction met guidelines established by Florida Statutes, Florida Administrative Rules and the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission policies and procedures.
On behalf of the academy, Nancy Bunch, PHSC’s director of public service programs, accepted a meritous award in recognition of the perfect audit at the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission quarterly business meeting on February 6. The award was presented by Bureau Chief Glen Hopkins, Bureau of Standards, Criminal Justice Professionalism, Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
New public service programs will begin this spring. PHSC will offer two “crossover” academies—Corrections to Law Enforcement and Law Enforcement to Corrections—beginning April 7. A new part-time evening Law Enforcement Academy will begin May 12. All programs will be held at PHSC’s East Campus in Dade City.
