Law Enforcement Training

Haywood Community College offers two programs under Public Safety Training: Basic Law Enforcement Training and the LEO In-Service Training program. Both Programs are vital in becoming an accomplished officer of the law. The Basic Law Enforcement Training program is a pre-requisite in becoming a police officer.
