The DACC Law Enforcement Academy (LEA) certificate program is focused on preparing the student to qualify for certification as a law enforcement officer in the State of New Mexico. Students participating in the course will be prepared to take the state tests. Certification as a law enforcement officer may only occur if a person is currently employed by a law enforcement agency within the State of New Mexico.
