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.
