Regional Police Academy

Police OfficersThe Regional Police Academy (RPA), with over 40 years of experience in law enforcement training, specializes in presenting programs of current and future interest to the law enforcement profession. The RPA is partially funded under a grant from the Criminal Justice Division of the Governor's Office, which allows us to keep tuition costs to a minimum.  All courses offered are certified for Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) credit. 

The mission of the Regional Police Academy is to provide high caliber, cost effective professional development opportunities for peace officers at various levels of the profession.  In meeting our mission to serve you and your personnel, we are pleased to offer courses in these categories of professional development. We can also customize courses to meet specific agency training needs.

The Law Enforcement Training Advisory Committee assists the Regional Police Academy and its programs by providing policy recommendations relating to law enforcement needs, coordination, evaluation and implementation of training.
