Mission Statement

Lone Star College’s Basic Peace Officer Course prepares cadets intellectually, ethically, and physically to matriculate into a department’s field training program and ultimately assume the responsibilities and duties of a peace officer of the 21st century. Rigorous training and testing ensure each graduating cadet can successfully pass the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement’s state exam and demonstrate the knowledge and physical skills that allow the cadet/graduate to serve the public in an effective, courteous, and professional manner.

Class Information
