On October 2, 2017,
Sheriff Henderson and his Leadership Team welcomed the twenty cadets of the
Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Basic Police Officer Course (BPOC).
This BPOC is unlike previous Peace-Officer licensing courses in that it is the
first full-time law enforcement training academy class comprised of paid cadets
that are slated for Patrol Division deployment.
As outlined in Sheriff
Rand Henderson’s strategic plan, presented early this year, the need for
additional patrol personnel is clearly evident and supported by the Montgomery
County Commissioners Court as part of their commitment to public safety. “We
were able to articulate the need for these positions to the Court with sound
data and a comprehensive multi-year plan. Getting this Academy up and running
with a group of motivated cadets who are up to the challenges that they will
face in preparation for patrol duties is exciting for all of us,” commented
This inaugural BPOC
class is set to graduate on March 1, 2018. These newly
minted Deputies will immediately begin the Field Training Program (FTO), being
distributed across each of the three Patrol Precincts during an intensive
sixteen week training process.
