NCC Announces 38th Law Enforcement Graduating Class

Students from Nash Community College’s Thirty-Eighth Basic Law Enforcement Training Academy graduated on Thursday, January 9th. The program includes physical and classroom state commission mandated topics and methods of instruction. The training covers subjects including criminal, juvenile, civil, traffic, and alcohol beverage laws, investigative, patrol, custody, and court procedures, emergency responses, ethics, community relations and more.

To graduate, students were required to successfully complete and pass all units of study, including 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. During the twenty-seven week training, students learned essential skills required for entry-level employment as law enforcement officers with state, county, or municipal governments, or private enterprise.

Nash Community College’s next Basic Law Enforcement Training academy will be offered as a day academy beginning August 18, 2014. For more information about the program, contact BLET Coordinator Adam Gelo at 252-451-8298 or
