Classes for Drury University’s Law Enforcement Academy in Lebanon are set to begin June 1.
 
Last week, Drury completed an agreement with Laclede County to lease classroom space in the Office of Emergency Management.
 
Tony Bowers, Director of the Law Enforcement Academy, said Drury is already offering a law enforcement academy in Springfield, but the new location will offer advantages for local law enforcement agencies and students alike.
 
He said the Lebanon location will provide convenient access for people from communities including Camdenton and Waynesville to attend classes.
 
“They won’t have to spend as much time on the road,” Bowers said.
 
He said local law enforcement agencies will be able to use the academy as a recruiting tool, agreeing to hire students as they graduate.
