Increased BLEA funding provided in the House budget

The House proposed budget includes vital increased funding for the Basic Law Enforcement Academy. The budget provides an increase of $1.3 million per year in FY 2018 and 2019 to provide six additional classes a year, on top of the current ten class schedule. The House also includes an increase in supplemental budget (FY 2017) funding to provide additional classes in the current biennium. AWC is working to get full funding for eight additional classes per year.
