Why this is important:
The Iowa Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA) is responsible for setting law enforcement standards and training/overseeing the training of all Iowa peace officers. It is important that the ILEA high standards be established to assure public safety for all Iowans.

What we're doing about this:
The director has established routine meetings with the Iowa community colleges to collaborate on accomplishing this goal. A college night will be held during every academy class. The director will attend career days when invited at high schools and community colleges and present programs to community service groups upon request.
