Sandhills Community College recently celebrated the graduation of Sandhills Hoke Center Basic Law Enforcement Training students. The program at the Hoke Center runs for 10 months, August through June, and is held one-two days per week. An evening program begins in January and takes only six months to complete, meeting five days per week.
BLET is designed to give students essential skills required for entry-level employment as law enforcement officers with state, county or municipal governments, or with private enterprise.
This program utilizes State-Commission-mandated topics (36) and methods of instruction. General subjects include, but are not limited to, criminal, juvenile, civil, traffic, and alcoholic beverage laws; investigative, patrol, custody, and court procedures; and ethics.
Students successfully completing a Basic Law Enforcement Training course, accredited by the North Carolina Justice Education and Training Standards Commission and the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission will receive 19 hours course credit toward the Associate in Applied Science degree in Criminal Justice Technology.
