It takes a lot to be accepted into the Montana Law Enforcement Academy in Helena – and it takes even more to graduate.

Ben Sutton is one of 39 officers training to be a cop at the Montana Law Enforcement Academy.

Instructor Richard Layng says the training is an intense 12-week course which consists of classroom work, driving instruction, and firearms training.

Layng noted, “When you get up on the line, like you just saw the officers on the line, you probably noticed there is a lot of concentration and it’s all business up there. When we get back off of the line or we’re on breaks in the classroom, after hours, there is a lot of friendship building and a lot of camaraderie.”
