  • 8-week Academy

    Did anyone here go through the 8-week Academy? If so, what was it like? Any words of advice?

    I am wondering the same... was just recently hired and told I will be attending the 8-week academy (witcc). Any thoughts about it, whats better the 8 or 13 week academy?

      The ILEA website says that it is for people with Criminal Justice or Police Science degrees. I am just about finished with my BA in Criminology at UNI. The website is: http://www.state.ia.us/ilea/Basics.htm. Click on any of the Basic II schools and they will show you the requirements. I would call them and ask them if a Public Administration degree qualifies you.

        I have an AA in CJ. If you want to keep your major of Public Administration, i wonder if a minor in CJ would qualify? I know ISU now has a CJ program.

          I had a friend of mine who had a Criminalogy Degree, and was not allowed to take the short academy. The Police Science degree will always get you in. Public Administration will not get you into the 8 week academy.

              i think you would get better training at the longer academy than the short.... thats what i have heard from other officers. go to the long if you have a choice is what they say.

                The short academy is just that short. 13 weeks is no where NEAR enough time to learn all that a new officer needs to make themselves and their fellow officers safe. The short academy is far to short, but you have to AT least have a degree in CJ for it to work, the short academy is saying you already have general knowledge Public Administration will give you no knowledge on how to be a cop.
