SUNY Canton Police Academy Receives $1,000 for Ethics Training
The David Sullivan St. Lawrence County Law Enforcement Academy at SUNY Canton recently received $1,000 from the Institute for Ethical Behavior, Inc.
The donation will be used to purchase learning materials related to the study of ethics for cadets enrolled in the academy as well as SUNY Canton’s four-year Criminal Investigation and two-year Criminal Justice programs, according to Academy Director Steven L. Livernois.
The Canton-based Institute for Ethical Behavior also created an endowed scholarship in 2000 as a memorial tribute to its founder, Harold K. Hughes. The scholarship is awarded annually to a Criminal Justice student who will promote awareness of the importance of individual character and ethical behavior.
The Academy provides training in physical fitness, firearms, arrest techniques, defensive tactics, radar, breath analysis, emergency medical services and emergency vehicle operation. Cadets receive their training from more than 70 full-time police officers from around the North Country and surrounding communities. The typical Police Academy cadet’s day begins at 7 a.m. with an hour of strenuous physical training followed by a full day of classroom studies and hands-on scenario-based trainings.
