Texas Police Academies
Texas police academies are operated through a combination of regional police academies and college or university-run academies. Recruits may be required to pay their own way through the academy before being hired by a department. In more urban areas with larger police department, you may need to be sponsored by a department before attending an academy. All academies in Texas are certified by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education.
