The Alamo Area Council of Governments Regional Law Enforcement Academy is a premiere law enforcement academy that provides training to 13 counties within the region. We offer three types of licensing courses as well as a vast array of law enforcement In-Service, Leadership, and Continuing Education Training. Our main focus is the Basic Peace Officer Course, which is the longest in duration and the most regulated. Cadets that attend our Academy graduate with over 950 training hours, well exceeding the 640 hours mandated by the State. Cadets earn their certifications in Radar/Lidar, TASER, OC Spray, NAPD Driving, etc. in addition to the required TCOLE training. We also offer Basic Telecommunicator Licensing Course as well as the Basic County Corrections Course. We currently offer three Basic Peace Officer Courses each year, but this year we will begin a 4th, with the addition of a part-time (night) Academy.
