SANTA FE (AP) — The state's Department of Public Safety Law Enforcement Academy is set to start with 59 cadets.

Officials said the cadets will begin a 16-week curriculum aimed at training them for law enforcement jobs in the state.

The cadets are from agencies around the state, including the Santa Fe Police Department.

The new class comes as police departments and sheriff's offices report a shortage of officers and deputies.
