Welcome to the Harrison County Law Enforcement Training Academy. We are full-service training academy offering basic certification and advanced courses in communications, corrections and law enforcement. The academy is a collaborative partnership between the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Located at 1400 Leggett Dr. Biloxi, Ms 39530, the Academy represents a vision of then-Sheriff (later U.S. Congressman) Larkin I. Smith, who, in the 1980’s, saw a specific need for a law enforcement training facility on the Gulf Coast.

We are proud to carry on the mission of a truly visionary law enforcement leader. Instructors come from the law enforcement and corrections community, many with advanced college degrees. Our instructor pool is comprised of practitioners; ensuring attendees receive real, practical training. Our basic classes comply with curriculum mandated by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, Office of Standards and Training. In addition, we offer advanced in-service programs to meet ongoing needs of law enforcement agencies.

If your agency has a specific training need, please feel free to contact the Academy at 228-435-3165.
