Texas State & Federal Law Update #3187 (TCOLE)

Course Number
Price (Shown in U.S. Dollars)

This is the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) mandated Texas State and Federal Law Update #3187 online training course offered for Texas Peace Officers.

In this course, we discussed the multiple bills passed by the 87th Legislature, and decisions the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court that impact Texas Peace Officers, city and county officials, judges, prosecutors, and emergency responders, as well as those of us living and working in Texas. Some of these changes are very dynamic, including the many facets of the Constitutional Carry laws, others directly impact how peace officers go about their duties. There were administrative alterations, changes to existing statutes, and new code requirements, as well as several new laws that are at odds with one another. Important case laws handed down by the US 5th Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court, are outlined and full copies of these decisions are provided to you for study and download.

The resulting new laws, administrative changes, and changes to existing statutes that came out of the 87th Texas Legislative Session will have an impact on Texas Law Enforcement. Unless otherwise noted, Texas Legislative Bills go into effect on September 1, 2021.

Please note, the entire course, final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive six (6) hours of course credit.
