NASHVILLE – Over 90 newly certified officers will graduate from the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy (TLETA) on Friday, September 28, 2018. The graduation ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. (CT) at Al Menah Shrine Temple (1354 Brick Church Pike, Nashville, TN).

“To excel as a law enforcement officer, you must have a heart for service, commitment and sacrifice,” said TLETA Director Brian Grisham. “The members of Class 1846 distinguished themselves by completing Basic Police School and by donating 76 units of blood during a blood drive that has the potential to save up to 228 lives. I congratulate Class 1846 for their hard work, and I wish them the best as they go forth and protect communities across Tennessee.”
