BASIC LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING BEGINS NOVEMBER 1st AT BCC DUBLIN – Bladen Community College will begin classes for men and women interested in Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) on November 1 st , 2018. Over the past 25 years, the college has graduated more than 250 candidates, providing skilled law enforcement personnel to local, town, county, regional, state, and federal organizations.

The 26-weeks program is approved for financial aid and VA benefits. The BLET program which combines physical conditioning with required classwork, utilizes State-Commission-Accredited topics and methods of instruction. General subjects include, but are not limited to, criminal, civil, juvenile, traffic and alcoholic beverage laws, investigative, patrol, custody and court procedures, emergency responses, firearms training and subject control arrest techniques

Eligible candidates for the BLET Academy must meet certain conditions such as passing the TABE Reading test, be at least 20 years old at the time of course
registration, pass a physical examination and be sponsored or employed by a public law enforcement agency.
