Stanly Community College students recently completed the Basic Law Enforcement Training 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.
