WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The skills required to become a law enforcement officer doesn't happen on its own. It takes practice and training.

The Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center was created back in 1968 and helps teach life-saving skills to countless police, deputies and troopers. The  KLETC is located in Hutchinson. The executive director Darin Beck said the center is responsible for training roughly 70% of all new law enforcement in the state. 

"The deputy of today or the law enforcement officer of today, needs to be a mediator they need to be a counselor they need to have those interpersonal skills that may be in previous generations they didn't need," said Beck.
