CAPCOG law enforcement cadets score another perfect pass rate

Monday, March 25, 2013

Cadets from CAPCOG's Regional Law Enforcement Academy Class 66 prepare to graduate March 22, 2013, in Austin, Texas.

Another class of CAPCOG Regional Law Enforcement Academy cadets has achieved a 100 percent first-attempt pass rate on the state exam for new peace officers.

The success marks another notch in the academy's pass-rate record, with all but two of the agency's approximately 20 cadet classes in the last five years having accomplished this feat.

What contributes to the academy's high pass rate? "Hard work and personal time spent with cadets," said RLEA Director Mike Jennings. "We work with them one-on-one and as a group."

Class 66, which started CAPCOG's six-month Basic Peace Officer Course last fall, comprised 28 cadets representing area agencies such as Cedar Park Police Department, Round Rock Fire Department, Caldwell County Sheriff's Office, San Marcos Police Department and Texas State University.

Cadets must pass the state exam administered by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education to become licensed peace officers.
