As the final few weeks of summer wind down and potential students weigh their options for fall classes and consider the career paths of their choosing, Sampson Community College wants to remind those interested that one of the most noble professions one can enter is that of law enforcement.

Basic Law Enforcement Training at Sampson Community College is designed for those who seek a profession in the exciting field of law enforcement. Many folks are not aware that this training is offered right on the campus of SCC but those interested should contact the college as soon as possible before seats fill up.

The popular course, which begins in early September, works well around most schedules as it’s an evening class from Monday through Thursday nights. To be accepted into the academy you must complete a Basic Law Enforcement Training packet. Some basic qualifications needed are: You must be a US Citizen, at least 21 years of age within one year of completing the training, be able to meet physical fitness and medical specifications and have no felony convictions.

Graduation for the current BLET students commences this week. Many local and regional job opportunities are available now so those interested are encouraged to contact Sharon West at (910) 592-8081 extension 2500 to obtain a packet or for more information. Regular fall registration for SCC continues on August 12th and 13th.
