Law Enforcement training at TCCC

Jason Medlin and his wife Brittney Medlin, both participants in the 2015 BLET program at TCCC,
act out an exercise as part of their training.

Tri-County Community College (TCCC) will hold the seventh annual basic law enforcement training beginning May 16 for those interested in a career in law enforcement.

“Students who take their basic law enforcement training at TCCC benefit from having the convenience of a training facility close to home,” said Allen Denny, BLET school director and criminal justice instructor at TCCC. “In addition, more than 90 percent of our students find employment following completion of our program.”

The North Carolina Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) course, which is a state accredited program, is designed to prepare entry-level individuals with the cognitive and physical skills to become certified police officers and deputy sheriffs.

“Of the students who have made it to the state exam portion of the program, we have nearly a 100 percent pass rate,” Denny said.

Students must be sponsored by a law enforcement agency and complete an application packet and be accepted to the program.

Students interested in attending the program must turn in their completed application packets to Denny by April 27. Click here to download the 2016 BLET Application Packet.
