Law Enforcement Academy at Lone Star College-University Park
Lone Star College’s Basic Peace Officer Course prepares cadets intellectually, ethically and physically to enter 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.
The academy will have full-time and part-time Basic Peace Officer classes beginning Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2017. The first day you can start the application process is Monday, Aug. 1, 2016. The application deadline for both classes is Friday, Nov. 18, 2016.
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.
Applicants must be 21 by the end of the class, a U.S. Citizen, hold a diploma or G.E.D. and not have a Class B or higher criminal history. Click here for more information on the minimum standards for enrollment.
