  • Program Information

The Brazosport College Law Enforcement Academy is a comprehensive Basic Peace Officer Licensure Certificate Program designed to prepare the student for employment as a police officer in the state of Texas. The information covered will provide foundation knowledge necessary to be a successful peace officer in a citizen-responsive, community-based environment. Successful completion of the certificate will allow the candidate to sit for the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) Basic Peace Officer licensing exam.

Two formats for completion of the 20 credit hour (696 class hours) program are offered to students: a full-time, daytime program, or a part-time, nighttime program.

The focus of a degree in criminal justice is different from the peace officer skills learned through the academy and the academy credit is not applicable to the degree requirements of the Associate of Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice.
