CAPCOG's Regional Law Enforcement Academy is offering training opportunities for aspiring peace officers and veteran professionals this spring.

The academy is accepting applications for its eight-month Basic Peace Officer Course, or cadet training, starting May 6, 2013, in Bryan, Texas. The part-time night class, offered in cooperation with the Brazos Valley Council of Governments and designed to meet the needs of working adults, includes academic instruction and preparation for the state licensing exam.

For current law enforcement professionals, CAPCOG’s continuing-education opportunities include the five-day Firearms Instructor Course starting March 18; the free class Focus on Reducing Impaired Driving Among Youth, March 22; the five-day Basic Instructor Course in mid-May; and more.

Also, CAPCOG’s Use of Force Simulator, a state-of -the-art training tool that helps law enforcement personnel prepare for a variety of sensitive situations, is available. Contact RLEA Director Mike Jennings to schedule the tool, which any agency that employs peace officers can use. > Go
