If you want to specialize in parks law enforcement, this is your program! SVC's Parks Law Enforcement Academy is one of only seven NPS-approved academies in the U.S. that provides the accredited curriculum that is also approved by other federal land management agencies as a Seasonal Law Enforcement Training Program (SLETP). It is also an approved training program accepted by local and state park agencies.
As a graduate of the academy, you will gain a competitive edge in seeking jobs with the various agencies in the law enforcement community. Our graduates have been highly successful in securing employment with the National Park Service, Washington State Parks, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Everett City Parks, and many other federal, state, county and city land management agencies (contact specific agencies for employment requirements).
In addition to the PLEA Certification, students are welcome to gain extra training in Wildland Firefighting and Emergency Medical Response (EMR). Classes are optional and tuition and fees are assessed separately. Gaining this extra training will add qualifications for students when they begin applying for competitive Federal and State Park Service employment.
