RLEA hosts regional Glock armorer course

Friday, May 08, 2015

Many Texas police agencies use Glock pistols as part of their everyday equipment. While the weapons often remain holstered, it’s critical to ensure an officer’s sidearm is working properly before it is needed.

On April 23, CAPCOG’s Regional Law Enforcement Academy (RLEA) hosted a Glock Armorer Certification workshop so agencies throughout the state could ensure the safety and functionality of the weapons.

Participants in the course learned how to dissemble and reassemble the pistols, but more importantly, the instructor taught how to diagnose problems with the firearms and make repairs if needed.

Twenty-nine law enforcement officers attended. Attendees included Texas Commission of Law Enforcement Executive Director Kim Vickers; members of the US Probation Office and Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife; officers from Houston, The Colony, Port Aransas, San Angelo, Pflugerville, Texas State University; and others.

Upcoming Courses

In May, RLEA will offer multiple law enforcement in-service courses including: Report Writing; and Intermediate Arrest, Search, and Seizure. 

Registration has started for the full-time, day basic peace officer course (BPOC) No. 77. The course will begin in September at Georgetown Police Department.
