LVMPD 400 Codes and Definitions for Academy
There seems to be some confusion about where to find the correct definitions and 400 code lists for studying prior to/during the Academy. Below are the CURRENT/UP-TO-DATE "Required Knowledge" at the Academy. I have both in .pdf file format and can e-mail them if requested.

I see that some definitions have changed in only a few years. (Specifically, assault, battery and burglary)
