CLEET Reserve Academy
CLEET Reserve Academy
The CLEET Reserve Academy registration is open only for individuals who are sponsored by an Oklahoma Law Enforcement Agency.
The mission of the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) is to:
Enhance public safety by providing education and training which promotes professionalism and enhances competency within the ranks of Oklahoma law enforcement; manage and regulate the licensing and training of private security.
The enabling legislation for the Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET or Council) is found in 70 O.S., Section 3311. In layman's terms, the principal mandates of this legislation are for the Council to:
Provide for basic peace officer certification, by establishing and conducting basic academies for all full-time peace officers employed by city, county, or state entities of government, with the exception of approved academy agencies.
Ensure, through CLEET's continuing education program, that all full-time, certified peace officers employed by city, county, or state entities of government, (approximately 9,900 officers) have access to twenty-five hours of annual continuing education.
Ensure that the seven CLEET approved academy city/agency basic academies meet those minimum standards set by state statute and the Council.
Provide for basic reserve officer certification for reserve peace officers employed by city, county, or state entities of government, by providing the curriculum, setting minimum standards, and by administrative oversight.
License those persons employed by the private security industry in Oklahoma and, by administrative oversight, ensure that students and private security trainers meet those minimum training standards set by the Council.
When you sign up, you will also download the application packet. Please bring it with you to the first meeting.
