The mission of the Permian Basin Law Enforcement Academy’s (PBLEA) Basic Peace Officer Course is to train our law enforcement recruits to be competent and confident Texas Peace Officers.
We take this mission very seriously as our recruits employed by regional law enforcement agencies will immediately serve as active peace officers on patrol after the academy.
PBLEA works with Police Chiefs and Sheriffs in our region to constantly plan to enroll their employed recruits in upcoming academies.
Any candidates not currently employed by an agency who would like to enroll in the Academy should contact PBLEA directly. Before contacting, please review the information concerning Minimum Standards for Enrollment by the Texas Administrative code. It is also suggested that you review the Physical Standards for enrollment into our Academy, and visit the Texas Occupational Code 1701 for Law Enforcement Officers.
Independent candidates are enrolled on a case-by-case basis.
