SCC Offers Basic Law Enforcement Training for 12-Hour Shift Workers

Stanly Community College (SCC) is offering a Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) class that will provide class hours for people who work a 12-hour rotating shift schedule. This BLET class is geared toward Local Law Enforcement, Department of Corrections employees and county detention officers, but it is open to anyone interested in the training.

Classes start January 2016.

SCC’s BLET certificate program 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.

Students must successfully complete and pass all units of study, which include the certification examination mandated by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission and the North Carolina Sheriffs' Education and Training Standards Commission, to receive a certificate.
