The Kansas Collegiate Law Enforcement Academy is conducted by the Kansas Highway Patrol Training Academy, in conjunction with community and state colleges in Kansas. The Collegiate Law program offers college students an exciting and unique view into what it takes to become a law enforcement officer, and what a career in the field offers. 

During the academy, students participate in a variety of scenario-based training sessions, including felony traffic stops, firearms, driving, and defense tactics. They also engage in team building exercises and obtain classroom training from certified instructors. 


Collegiate Law is offered to college students of any age who are enrolled in a Criminal Justice program. The student must complete an application packet, which includes an endorsement from the Dean and Criminal Justice Advisor at their school, as well as an endorsement from a law enforcement official.  Also included in the packet is an essay for why students would like to attend, and a physical which must be completed. The cost per student is $125, which covers the cost of the training, and room and board.  A sponsor must accompany students to the academy, and there is no charge for the sponsor to attend.
