I completed the program last night. I must say, I am impressed. I am a Chief of Police in California and am looking to relocate to Texas. The OSS Academy has afforded me a great opportunity to painlessly complete some of the training requirements I need. My goal is to take the TCOLE exam in the next couple of months, then continue to use OSS to load up on more required training as I seek employment. See you at the next course! Best,
- D. Steidle, Chief in California
I was just writing to say thank you for what you guys do. I was out of the police for 9 years a decided I missed it and was ready to get back in. I signed up and took the courses I needed and passed my reactivation test the first try. I am currently back out on patrol and loving it. Again Thank You,
- J. Payne, Texas Peace Officer
I would like to take this time to thank you for your guidance and amazing customer service. Everything about the course was clear and concise. The study material was sufficient and I will be referencing that material as I proceed with the process. I highly recommend OSS Academy to everyone thinking of crossing over to Texas Law Enforcement.

I took the state test today and scored a 85 1st attempt. Thx for the help
- J. Carter, Texas Peace Officer
I was able to retire from the New York State Police and transfer to the Bexar County Sheriff's Department, and I couldn't have done it without your assistance. Thanks!
- K. Page, Texas Peace Officer
Good afternoon ... It took a while but I was finally able to get a test date for this morning. The test took about me about an hour and I scored a 91. I don’t think I could have done a whole lot better as there is a great deal to know, and I did not attend a police academy, but am a retired federal agent who took your supplemental course. I’m appreciative of having been able to complete your supplemental course ... at my convenience, as opposed to months at an academy. Kindest regards,
- J. Gelista, Texas Peace Officer
