graduate was Class #220 on March 30, 1984. Since then, the academy classes have been located at the Sheriff's Training Academy and Regional Services (STARS) Center in Whittier.

Construction began in March 2011 and includes over 36,000 square feet of classrooms, offices, a gym, locker rooms, a new parade deck and grinder and a stage that holds nearly 800 people. The new training center includes an expanded parking lot which accommodates 232 staff and visitor parking spaces. The total cost of the project was approximately $22,132,000 dollars. Academy Class #402 will begin training on June 23, 2014 and will be the first class at the new facility. "I look forward to returning to the Training Academy at Biscailuz Center and bringing back the many traditions and the glory that made the Sheriff's Academy so special when it was located in East Los Angeles," said Training Bureau Captain Allan Smith.

"Attending the academy is the fundamental step in every single person's career who dons the badge and gun. It is the place where the core values of this great organization are instilled into a recruit," said Sheriff Scott.
