The law enforcement academy at the Technical College of the Rockies is up and running again, six months after losing POST certification.
The Colorado Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) board, the governing body for law enforcement, suspended the academy last fall.
The Technical College of the Rockies is the recipient of a $680,000 grant awarded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA), as part of the 2017 Assistance to Coal Communities initiative. This grant will support the start-up operations of the ENGAGE (ENergy - Growth - AGriculture & Entrepreneurship) Innovation Project, which will be operated under the umbrella of TCR. ENGAGE will provide the necessary entrepreneurial support to help launch new businesses in Delta County with a special focus on value-added food manufacturing, energy, and ag-related businesses.
State representatives and senators visiting Delta recently were interested in hearing how Delta County Joint School District #50 is spending the one-time funds authorized by the Colorado State Legislature last spring.
The funds were included in SB17-267, the bill titled "Sustainability of Rural Colorado" that preserved the hospital provider fee.
Forty years ago, the communities of Delta and Montrose came together to establish a community college to expand educational opportunities for the secondary students in their high schools, as well as provide training for adults seeking to develop job skills.
Today, the Technical College of the Rockies (TCR) is operated solely by Delta County Joint School District #50.
The Technical College of the Rockies is hosting a community open house complete with tours, free lunch and program presentations. The open house celebrates the new name of the college, as well as the new director, Michael Klouser.
It's official -- Aug. 9 marks the date the name change for Delta-Montrose Technical College takes effect. The college will now be known as the Technical College of the Rockies.
