Last week our Training Advisory Board met to review our law enforcement training from 2021 and our training plan for 2022.
Aransas Pass Police Department is a contract training provider for TCOLE (Texas Commission on Law Enforcement) and is responsible for providing training not only to our agency, but also to those in our area. The Aransas Pass Police Department Training Division reports to a Training Advisory Board comprised of both law enforcement and public members. The Training Advisory Board is responsible for advising on the development of curricula, policies and procedures, identifying specific training needs, and determining the type, frequency, and location of courses to be offered.
Special thanks to our Training Advisory Board Members for their dedication to the Aransas Pass Police Department Training Division and their commitment to Aransas Pass citizens.
