The Brazosport College Law Enforcement Academy is recruiting for enrollment in its fall 2019 Basic Peace Officer Certification courses.

Academy applicants must complete and submit the application to the Law Enforcement Academy Coordinator by August 5. Application packets for the Law Enforcement Academy are currently available at the Brazosport College Library.

Prospective students must go through the application process before registering for the academy.

Two certification courses will be offered, including a day academy and a night academy. The day academy begins August 19 and runs 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, while the night class, which starts August 26, is 6 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Successful applicants will participate in more than 600 hours of training in various subjects such as criminal law, firearms and arrest tactics, as well as emergency driving, traffic enforcement and criminal investigation.  

Applicants must undergo a recruiting process, including a criminal history check and psychological evaluation. Upon successful completion of the training course, candidates will become eligible to sit for the state licensing exam. A passing score of 70 or above on the state licensing exam will make the candidate eligible for employment in the state of Texas as a police officer, deputy sheriff, constable and other law enforcement capacities.
