Tri-County Community College will hold its annual basic law enforcement training beginning May 21 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 Tri-County Community College. “In addition, more than 90 percent of our students find employment following completion of our program.”

The North Carolina Basic Law Enforcement Training 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.

Additionally, the required Test for Adult Basic Education for enrollment in the BLET program will be administered on April 23 at both 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. in the Crisp Building at the main campus in Peachtree.

“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 May 11. For more information, contact Denny at (828) 835-4243 or visit
