Entrance Exam - Basic Peace Officer Course No. 95 (Full Time, Day)

Prospective Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC) candidates need to take and pass an entrance exam scheduled for May 7, 2021 before they qualify for enrollment in the Regional Law Enforcement Academy’s BPOC No. 95 (FT, Day) which is scheduled to start Monday, Monday Sept. 13, 2021 and projected to end March 31, 2022.

The timed exam is a four-part test covering basic mathematics, reading comprehension, grammar, and writing skills. Candidates must score at least a 70 on each section of the exam. Further BPOC qualification instructions will be given after the exam.

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.

Subjects 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.
