Recently Updated for 2021: Texas Supplemental Peace Officer #1018 (TCOLE)
Statewide Texas June 14th Deadline Approaching: Cybersecurity & Malware Awareness for Employees (Texas HB 3834)
This is an OSS Academy® Electronic Control Device - Basics online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.
This course is designed as a familiarization, a review, or a refresher. The scope and scale of information regarding Electronic Control Devices (ECD) can be vast and varied, and is legally dynamic. Because electronic control devices are a relatively recent law enforcement innovation, research into the effects of exposure is ongoing, and the legal landscape has been evolving, but lagging in pace with developments. ECDs are often referred to by various names such as TASERs, CEDs, ECDs, or ECWs, but the applications are generally the same. The vast majority of officers in the U.S. are equipped with products from TASER International, Inc. For that reason, discussions in this course may refer to those products and their incumbent technologies. This course is not a product endorsement. The goal of this course is to provide information that will equip you to safely and effectively use your electronic control device in a defensible manner. Material in this course is not legal advice. As always, seek legal information and recommendations from your department's legal advisor.
Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.
