Legislative Updates Training

Last week, Aransas Pass Police Department hosted two Legislative Updates Classes. The class was put on by Texas Municipal Police Association (TMPA) at no cost to APPD or the participants. In all, we had 67 officers and staff from across South Texas attend this training.

The legislative updates course is a required course by TCOLE every two years for all law enforcement officers. This class covers laws that were added or changed in the 87th legislature, along with other changes to Penal Code, Code of Criminal Procedure, Transportation Codes, Health and Safety Codes, Government Codes, and Family Codes. This course also covered recent U.S. Supreme Court cases pertaining to Texas law enforcement.

Special thanks to Ray Wilkinson and TMPA for putting on two great classes.
