This Civil Issues Facing Street Officers (TCOLE) elective online Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) training course is offered by OSS Academy® for Texas Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.
Were you trained in civil law? Most peace officers do not receive adequate training regarding the civil aspects of law enforcement. This course is designed to help you apply key aspects of civil process and law enforcement authority under Texas Law, to learn and apply better solutions to landlord-tenant issues, and to comprehend different aspects of the law so you can provide informed answers to persons affected by civil issues/disagreements.
Please note, the entire course (including any applicable course parts), final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive three (3) hours of course credit.
After successful course completion, your credit hours will be reported within two (2) business days by OSS Academy® directly through TCLEDDS, for Texas Commission on Law Enforcement [TCOLE] credit. You should have already provided your full and correct name, TCOLE PID number, and other important information when registering for your account. If not, go to Edit Profile to update your information. For instructions, go to Frequently Asked Questions, then search for “How do I input my TCOLE PID number into the training system?” or "When do you report my TCOLE hours for credit?" Your failure to provide this information can cause reporting errors or delays in reporting your course credit.
