Sheriffs, Jail Administrators, and Friends,

The Kansas Jail Training Academy (KJTA) dates for 2020 include February 3rd - 7th, May 4th - 8th, August 10th - 14th, and November 9th - 13th.

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.

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

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.
