lawenforcementorientationA total of 28 students were on hand for orientation Friday as the Middle Rio Grande Law Enforcement Academy prepares to begin the fall semester.

Instruction in the 643-hour academy will officially begin on the first day of class Monday, Aug. 5. The class will end in December.

Once students complete the class they are required to pass a state licensing exam to become peace officers in Texas. For the past four years, the academy has had a 100% pass rate on the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education (TECLOSE) exam.

Academy coordinator Mike Leavene and instructor Kara Lands are the two full-time instructors for the program in Uvalde.
