Law Enforcement Academy
The Law Enforcement Academy (LEA) program held at La Puente High
School, is dedicated to equip highly motivated students to enter
the law enforcement profession or other related fields. This is
a 4-year high school program with academic training in: Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Forensic Science,
English, Math and Community Service.
It also has a rigorous Physical Fitness
program. The program has a computer lab, weight room
and an obstacle course (which
prepares the participants to encounter and overcome the
challenges of life.)
To enhance their education,
students participate in field trips to
Los Angeles County courts,
the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Academy, and the Museum of Tolerance. Students
are also involved in leadership courses, and other activities at the YAL.
The program joins with parents and the community to help ensure
a brighter future for its participants. This is truly a team
effort, but the students are the key. The LEA staff is committed
to helping students in anyway possible, but the
staff will not carry them, they must learn to walk and
stand on their own.
The philosophy of the LEA is to
use goal incentives, encouragement, a strong support
system, and positive
reinforcement to help students
achieve their goals. We seek to focus on elevating the
life, rather than exhausting recourses geared
toward suppressing evil.
