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.

As of December 2, 2021, the BPOC tuition cost for Full-Time and/or Part-Time Academy is $3500 per student 

Testing for the BPOC Part – Time 2022 Echo Class is currently ongoing, testing for all other classes will be posted soon.  Please be advised that if the applicant begins the application process, the documents will be valid for 180 days, therefore if you begin the process for a BPOC class (i.e. Bravo Class), you may not be able to apply for a BPOC course that is a few classes ahead (i.e. Delta Class), due to the 180 day expiration date.
