Untitled document

Basic Law Enforcement Training (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 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; emergency responses; and ethics and community relations. Successful graduates receive a curriculum certificate upon passing the certification examinations mandated by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission and/or the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission.

We also offer Basic Law Enforcement Training classes in our Workforce Development and Career Readiness department.

In January 2015, we will offer both a day (Monday-Friday 7:00 am-7:00 pm) and evening/weekend (Monday-Thursday 6:00-10:00 pm, Saturday 8:00 am-6:00 pm) Basic Law Enforcement Training course. There must be at least ten students in a class for the class to run. Admissions packets are available from the Elizabeth City campus in room FC 129 or from the Roanoke Island campus at the front desk. All admissions paperwork must be completed by December 5 in order to be considered for the Spring courses.
