I-Team: Constable's Academy Cadets Placed in New School

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Six out of more than a dozen Las Vegas Constable's Academy cadets, who were left in a lurch when the academy closed this year, have enrolled in a new school.

The I-Team has learned Clark County has placed those cadets in the Department of Juvenile Justice Academy. The cadets are now in their second week of instruction.

The Department of Juvenile Justice Academy is listed as a Category-2 school, which opens fewer job opportunities than the now-defunct Las Vegas Constable's Academy, which was a Category-1 school.

County officials say they are also looking to reimburse the remaining cadets who chose not to enroll in the new academy.

The I-Team first reported in August the Las Vegas Constable's office pulled its sponsorship of the Las Vegas Law Enforcement Academy, which provided peace officer training for those not yet employed by a law enforcement agency.

The students paid approximately $4,500 each in tuition.
