On October 29, 2019, at 10:00 AM, fifteen men and women accepted their future in Texas law enforcement. Each person who received their graduation diploma from the SPAG Law Enforcement Academy Texas Basic Peace Officer Course also received a new life and a new career. The course entailed 643 classroom hours and countless of study hours to reach this momentous occasion. Each cadet’s academy ten-hour day involved topics such as the Rules and Regulations of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement, Professionalism and Ethics, Multiculturalism and Human Relations, Code of Criminal Procedure, Penal Code, Traffic law, Force Options, Communication, and Problem Solving, and Criminal investigations and the list goes on.
Cadets are fortunate to receive instruction from law enforcement experts and leaders in the south plains region from law enforcement agencies from the State of Texas, Lubbock County, surrounding cities, and school districts. Cadets not only receive the prescribed curriculum, during their instruction they are also being sized up for recruitment by the same instructors. At SPAG LEA, it is common for cadets to graduate with a career offer waiting for them.
