Entrance Exam - Basic Peace Officer Course No. 97 (PT Nights)

The anticipated start date for the next BPOC #97 is August 29, 2022 and is to be  at  hosted by the Williamson Co. Sheriff's Office. (You will be notified promptly if dates or locations change).

BPOC 97 is a 9 1/2 month, part-time, evening Basic Peace Officer Academy.  This Part time, Night Academy runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Thursdays and from 8 am - 5 pm on Saturdays. It is designed for those who need to work during daytime hours.

Prospective Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC) candidates need to pass the Police Officer Entrance exam before they can qualify for enrollment in the Regional Law Enforcement Academy’s BPOC No. 97 (PT, Night class) 

The timed exam is a four-part test covering basic mathematics (calculators not allowed), reading comprehension, grammar, and writing skills. Candidates must score at least a 75 average calculated on all four sections. Further BPOC Enrollment instructions will be given after the exam, so please be prepared to stay for at least another hour or so more for important information.

BPOCs are designed to meet the initial training requirements mandated by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) for becoming a Certified Texas Peace Officer and to prepare students to take the State's Peace Officer Licensing Exam.

BPOC Topics are taught by TCOLE Certified Peace Officers to meet standardized objectives and to prepare students for the realities of working as a peace officer. Many subjects are taught in an academic setting, while others are taught as 'hands-on' practical lessons and WILL also include some Physical Fitness Training for your health.
