Entrance Exam - Basic Peace Officer Course No. 91 (Full Time, Day) or 92 (PT,Nts)

Prospective Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC) candidates need to take and pass an entrance exam scheduled for Feb 26, 2020 before they qualify for enrollment in the Regional Law Enforcement Academy’s BPOC No. 91 (FT, Day) which is scheduled to start Monday, June 15, 2020 and projected to end Friday, Jan 15, 2021 OR the BPOC 92 (Part-Time, Nights) tentatively scheduled to begin in Sept, 2020 and projected to end in June, 2021.

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.

 BPOC 91 is a 7 month long, full time, day Basic Peace Officer Course Academy (police training). The Full time Academy runs from 6:45 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and an occasional Saturday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM.

BPOC 92 (dates TBD) will be a 9 month long, part time, night class that runs from 6-10 pm M-Th and Saturdays from 8-5 pm.

February 26, 2020, 1:30pm – 4:30pm

Cost: $50.00
