The Administrative Section supervises physical maintenance of the State Police Academy, the Walker Shooting Range, and the Emergency Response Training Facility at Holden; coordinates professional services contracts, employee training and development, vendor payments, preparation of fiscal reports, and all purchases for the State Police Academy. In addition, The Administrative Section maintains all training and recertification records for the Louisiana State Police that are required by law and other training records from professional training programs outside the State Police Academy.

In addition, the Applied Technology Section performs maintenance and certification of intoxilizers throughout the state and maintains records regarding training and certification of personnel and equipment.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

1. In FY 1998-99, the Administrative Program will conduct one Louisiana State Police Cadet class.

1 A 100% graduation rate of cadets while desirable is seldom obtained due to the rigorous academic and physical standards of the Academy and various personal reasons for resignation from the Academy.

2 A 97-cadet class started in January 1998. Another cadet class with approximately 30 cadets will start in June 1998.

2. In FY 1998-99, the Administrative Program will conduct 40 in-service recertification courses for all required Louisiana State Police topics.

1 These recertification topics include, but are not limited to, breath analysis, firearms, first aid, defensive tactics, officer survival, radar and driver recertification.

3. In FY 1998-99, the Administrative Program will conduct a minimum of 165 police development courses.
