MCOLES: Military Police Basic Training Program
Date: September 17, 2013
Last year the MCOLES staff created a basic training program for military police veterans. Its purpose is to transition those with military policing experience and training into the civilian sector more quickly and efficiently. As outlined in a previous Newsletter article, we want to recognize prior military service and at the same time acknowledge veterans’ service and sacrifice to our country. After program development and full Commission approval, the first 240-hour military school was completed at Grand Valley State University (GVSU). This inaugural session ran from June 24, 2013 and completed with a graduation ceremony in Grand Rapids on August 6, 2013. Seven participants successfully completed the program and all have submitted applications to law enforcement agencies around the state.
