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

The Lone Star College-University Park Law Enforcement Academy will resume classes on January 5, 2015. The academy will have three Basic Peace Officer classes; a full-time class, Monday through Friday 7:00 am until 4:15 pm; a part-time day class Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am until noon; and also a part-time night class Monday through Thursday from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Upon completion of the course, cadets will take the 250-question state licensing exam. They must pass with a score of 70 or above, at which point they will be eligible to apply to any law enforcement agency in the state.
