CTC - Police Academy
The Central Texas College Police Academy (TCOLE License Number 511261) is designed to prepare students to pass the basic peace officer licensing exam given by Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE). Once a cadet successfully completes the academy, they will be eligible to take the peace officer licensing exam. Once the cadet passes the exam, they will have a significantly higher chance of being hired by a law enforcement agency anywhere in Texas.
