Sheriffs, Jail Administrators, and Friends,

The Kansas Jail Training Academy (KJTA) is on May 20-24, 2019 and on September 9-13, 2019 for Training.

The Kansas Jail Training Academy is offering this extensive five-day curriculum filled with training specifically for detention officers.  Using NIJO trained instructors, we have collaborated with the Kansas Jail Association to ensure the primary topics needed for line level staff are thoroughly addressed, including complete testing on the material covered so that administrations have documentation of the attendee’s comprehension to these critical subjects.  Price includes all lodging and meals for the duration of the academy.

Space is very limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible. If your agency is sending more than 5 attendees at once, please contact NIJO directly and we can assist with bulk registrations.

Both classes will now be held at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC), 11009 South Hornet, Hutchinson, KS  67501.

Here is the Link to Register for the September Training:

Please Note: Both the May 20-24, 2019 Class and the September 9-13, 2019 Class are NOW FULL.   

We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with you and train your detention staff.  The challenges most jails face of being short-staffed and dealing with turnover cannot be overstated, which further emphasizes the necessity of investing in our #1 resource in the jails – our staff.  Thank you for supporting those that work in your jails by sending them to this training.
