Course detail: Property Crimes Investigation

Course Description: 

Property Crimes Investigations is an 8-hour training designed to promote the development of participants in investigative techniques, problem-solving skills and case management skills that will promote thoroughness and professionalism leading to an arrest and aiding in a successful prosecution.

Notice of Availability of the KLETC Annual Security and Fire Safety Report:

The University of Kansas has determined that the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC) main campus in Hutchinson and its regional sites in Dodge City, Hays, and Parsons are separate campuses.

The report also contains information about crime statistics for the three most recent calendar years concerning reported crimes that occurred On-Campus; in On-Campus Student Housing Facilities; in Non-Campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the institution or a recognized student organization; and on Public Property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from, the campus.
