Regional Law Enforcement Academy

The Regional Law Enforcement Academy (RLEA) provides a Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC) for those wishing to become licensed peace officers and offers in-service training for current peace officers. RLEA is accredited by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, the state agency governing licensure and qualifications for Texas peace officers.

RLEA instructors are experienced law enforcement professionals who play a critical role in providing needed training to law enforcement personnel. Changes in statutory law, case law, public policy, crime trends and public opinion continuously shape training needs. RLEA courses are designed to enhance the quality and productivity of law enforcement agencies throughout Central Texas.

A list of classes currently being offered can be found on the Training Registration Page.

Law Enforcement Education Committee (LEEC)

RLEA strives to provide effective training that meets the needs of the region. Regional training needs are assessed through the results of a bi-annual Training Needs Survey as well as input from the Regional Law Enforcement Academy's Law Enforcement Education Committee (LEEC) and input from area chiefs and training coordinators. RLEA is committed to providing courses within close proximity of agencies with the most need. Regional training assessments allow RLEA to strategically locate satellite facilities to provide training near local law enforcement agencies throughout the region. The LEEC is made up of public officials, law enforcement personnel and community members from the 10-county region and is governed by LEEC Bylaws.
