Costa Rica plans to build new police academy

Friday, December 14, 2012

Though Costa Rica has 14,000 police officers, 35 percent have not completed the basic police training course, which serves as an introduction to police work and teaches officers the basic skills to do their jobs.

Now, however, the Ministry of Public Safety will break ground on a new National Police Academy in March 2013.

The facility will be able to house 800 prospective officers, who will take college-level courses and receive a bachelor’s degree in police science upon graduation.
