TCOLE cycle ends in August

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Every two years peace officers need 40 hours of continuing education credits to maintain their Texas Commission on Law Enforcement certificates.

Between now and August, the Capital Area Council of Governments Regional Law Enforcement Academy (RLEA) will offer numerous courses so area officers can earn continuing education hours and keep their certificates.

Area policing agencies and their officers should review their training hours now to ensure they remain certified. For officers who haven’t already met the continuing education requirements, they can find course schedules and descriptions of each upcoming class on the CAPCOG training website.

> Visit the CAPCOG Training website for law enforcement officers.

TCOLE recently mandated that peace officers be required to have four hours of human trafficking education and training. RLEA will offer several courses on the topic at least once a month until the end of the training cycle. There should be plenty of time and courses to ensure every Capital Area peace officer maintains their law enforcement certificate.
