An article on the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, which has been housed in a fortress-like compound in Vassalboro since 2000. Maine puts every law enforcement officer through an intense 18-week residential program. Since 2001, all law enforcement officers are trained together, which many police officials believe has improved interdepartmental communication. The first six weeks of the course amounts to a police boot camp; the Basic Law Enforcement Training Program course consists of 720 hours of instruction. Westbrook patrolman Brian Dell Isola, who once worked with troubled teens, talks about the rigors and rewards of his academy experience.
