Academy Trainee Program
In an effort to ensure the success of female recruit officers entering the Police Academy, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) offers the Crime Academy Trainee (AT) program to qualified police officer candidates eligible to begin their training. Police officer candidates are eligible for the AT program after they have successfully completed all steps of the application process. AT's receive a monthly salary commensurate with their duties, while they are trained in the curriculum that has been identified as most crucial to success. The program consists of physical training, psychological preparation, formation and drill procedures, academic instruction and a work assignment in an LAPD division. AT's usually spend five weeks in the program before entering recruit training. For more information, please call (310) 342-3108.
