Albemarle, NC –Stanly Community College (SCC) students recently completed the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program and were honored at a graduation ceremony on the Albemarle campus.

The four-month full-time BLET program gives 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 response, ethics and community relations.

Successful graduates receive a curriculum certificate and are qualified to take the state certification exam mandated by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission and/or the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission.

Students in the BLET program may be eligible for scholarships up to $750 per semester through the Golden LEAF Foundation.

The next class of SCC’s BLET program begins September 6, with all required documentation submitted by August 31.
