Harris County Precinct 6 (as well as most other departments) require a basic peace officer certification prior to commissioning. After completing the mandated training, a reserve candidate may begin the application process by contacting our personnel division at (713) 923-9156. Several Houston area colleges, such as U.H.Downtown, H.C.C.System and C.O.M. Texas City offer peace officer classes and academies. Please go to TCLOSE web site for other state requirements, certification and licensing information or contact our office.
The total mandated training of 620 hours (mandated by T.C.L.E.O.S.E.) usually only represents the minimum hours of state certified training a Reserve acquires. Many academies surpass the minimum amount of hours to ensure cadets receive quality training. TCLEOSE mandates in-service training for continuing education every year; along with an annual firearms qualifications.
