The Central Arkansas Law Enforcement Training Academy (Central ALETA or CALETA) was established in 2017. Through a partnership with Camp Robinson, Central ALETA began its inaugural basic academy class in February, 2017. Central ALETA was created as a resource for law enforcement agencies in Central Arkansas as an alternative to sending new recruits to Camden or Springdale for basic training. Basic and specialized law enforcement training courses are taught at Central ALETA year round. Central ALETA is committed to providing students with the most effective and current training available.

ALETA has created a four-week Pre-Academy Preparation Program (PAPP) to acclimate the new Law Enforcement Officer with firearms, department policy, and a physical training regimen prior to attending the Academy.
After many years, we have found that students have less stress, fewer problems, retain information better and perform required physical tasks significantly better, when they have had an opportunity to get somewhat familiar with the job functions of Law Enforcement prior to their first day at the Academy.
Please visit the PRE-ACADEMY PREPARATION page to access resources needed for successful completion of the program.
