About the Part-Time Evening Class:

The Alamo Area Regional Law Enforcement Academy will be hosting an evening / part-time Basic Peace Officer Course (BPOC).  The BPOC Course will be held on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm-10pm, with some Saturdays from 8am-5pm.  The cadet will also have to make themselves available to attend the Firearms Course, Crisis Intervention Training Course (CIT - TCOLE #1850 - 40 hours), and the Driving Course from Monday – Friday from 8am-5pm.  These dates will be announced with anticipation for the cadet to make necessary arrangements to take these assigned weeks off if they are currently working.  The reason for having to do these particular subjects in a one week period is due to reserving the necessary venue and TCOLE’s rules.

The Part-Time Academy cost will be between $2900 - $3500.  The final cost will be determined by December 2021.

Testing for this BPOC Part – Time 2022 Echo Class will begin on November 17th, 2021.  Please register online for the BPOC Entrance Exam Part-Time at https://aarlea.com/calendar/month
