Basic Peace Officer Course No. 89 (full-time, day)

The Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC) is designed to meet the initial training requirements mandated by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) for becoming a Certified Texas Peace Officer and to prepare students to take the State's Peace Officer Licensing Exam.

Subjects are taught by TCOLE Certified Peace Officers to meet standardized objectives and to prepare students for the realities of working as a peace officer. Many subjects are taught in an academic setting, while others are taught as 'hands-on' practical lessons.  This is a 6-month, full-time, police training academy which runs from 6:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Thursday. This '4/10' schedule is intended to promote using less fuel during the weekly commute, to provide more study time for cadets, and to emulate a 10-hour work schedule used by most law enforcement agencies.
