The College of the Redwoods Basic Law Enforcement Training Center is currently filling the roster for the 129th Basic Law Enforcement Academy scheduled to begin January 10, 2022. 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 group tests on Saturday, August 28 at 9:00 am. There will be additional testing opportunities on October 2 and November 6 at 9:00 am. Anyone wishing to take the test can call the office at 707-476-4334 to register. Prior to the written test, there will be a required physical assessment consisting of:
• 20 pushups (straight-leg) in one minute
• 25 sit-ups in one minute
• Run 1.5 miles in 17 minutes or less.
This is a pass/fail assessment to ensure candidates are prepared for the physical rigors of the Academy.
