The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office law enforcement training academy graduated another class of recruits today in Lake Charles. The 112th Basic Academy consist of police officers from the 5 parish area.

Let me tell you this is no cupcake academy!  I went to this academy back in 1997 as a Deputy with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office and graduated in the 61st basic academy.  It's a combination of physical fitness, firearms and a lot of book work learning the statutes and laws of Louisiana.
