Graduation, perfect pass rate for CAPCOG Cadet Class 69

Friday, September 20, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 A graduating cadet from Basic Peace Officer Class 69 receives her certificate from Mike Jennings, director of CAPCOG's Regional Law Enforcement Academy, on Sept. 20, 2013.

As CAPCOG's Regional Law Enforcement Academy Class 69 graduated Friday morning, Sept. 20, 2013, at the Texas State Capitol, the group carried an additional badge of success: a 100 percent first-attempt pass rate on the state exam for new peace officers. 

The achievement continues RLEA's years-long pass-rate record, with all but two of the agency's more than 20 cadet classes in the last five years having scored this feat. In addition, more than half the group scored 90 or higher on their state test.

Class 69, which started CAPCOG's six-month Basic Peace Officer Course last spring, comprised more than 25 cadets representing area agencies including the following:

  • Austin Independent School District
  • Bertram Fire Department
  • Elgin Police Department
  • Fayette County Sheriff’s Office
  • Georgetown Police Department
  • Hays County Sheriff’s Office
  • Leander Police Department
  • Lexington Police Department
  • Round Rock Fire Department
  • San Marcos Police Department
  • Taylor Police Department

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