Continuing Education for Constables is designed to provide ongoing updates for elected or appointed Constables on issues of importance to the discipline as well as professional development opportunities in the law enforcement field. Mandated by the Texas Legislature every four years, the program covers legislative developments and changes to rules and forms from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement as well as leadership and planning tools on current topics and issues.
Continuing Education for Constables (CEC) is a five day course.
Participants receive 40 hours of TCOLE (374399) credit which includes the Court Security Officer requirement.
