The Basic Peace Officer Licensing program prepares students for a career as a Texas Peace Officer. Upon successful completion, students take the state licensure examination. Students must be at least 21 years of age and a US citizen, submit to fingerprinting for a criminal history report, physical examination and drug screen, psychological evaluation, achieve an acceptable score in English and reading on the COMPASS test, and have a high school diploma or GED. Students must meet stringent requirements that exceed general college rules for enrollment and completion of this program. Students may enroll in day (full or part-time) or night (part-time) classes.
