The Las Cruces Police Department is now taking applications for its next training academy.

LCPD’s 43rd academy is tentative set to begin in September.

Cadets earn $15.5o and hour during the academy with a boost to $17.83 during their one-year probationary period that includes eligibility for a $3,000 retention bonus.

The trainees then move up to about $42,700 annually as regular officers.

Applicants must be at least 19 when the academy starts and be U.S. citizens with at least a high school diploma and no felony convictions.

Additional information is available on the LCPD website.
