The College of the Redwoods Basic Law Enforcement Training Center is currently filling the roster for the 128th Basic Law Enforcement Academy, scheduled to begin July 12, 2021. The first step to joining the Academy is the POST Entry Level Law Enforcement Test Battery (PELLETB). Testing is being offered on weekdays for individuals. The Academy will also offer one group test on Saturday, May 22 at 9:00 am. Anyone wishing to take the test and to be considered for entrance can call the office at 707-476-4334. Prior to the written test, there will be a required physical assessment consisting of:
• 20 pushups in a minute
• 25 sit-ups in a minute
• 1.5 mile run in 17 minutes or less.
This is a pass/fail assessment to ensure candidates are prepared for the physical rigors of the Academy. This will be the only group test prior to the start of the fall class. The next Academy is scheduled for January of 2022.
