Law enforcement officers are vital parts of their communities, standing between the law-abiding public and the criminals who would do them harm. With a basic peace officer certificate from the Collin College Law Enforcement Academy (CCLEA), you can be part of that proud tradition.

For more than 25 years, the academy has trained graduates to serve and protect. With a curriculum developed by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) and state-of-the-art facilities designed to simulate real-world situations, cadets are prepared for the state’s Peace Officer Licensing Exam.

The Collin College Law Enforcement Academy is considered one of the top programs in the state. Law enforcement personnel from the rank of patrol officer to chief of police from around the state have been trained there. The Certificate - Basic Peace Officer program is designed to allow you to become a certified peace officer in the State of Texas and, simultaneously, provide a pathway to a college degree.

The academy also offers continuing education classes for law enforcement officers already on the job. Click the department website link below to learn more.
