Do you recognize other state’s police officer certifications?

Yes, the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) will allow you to challenge the Texas test without attending the academy again. We will prepare you for that if hired. This does take some time, so it would help to contact TCOLE and start the paperwork as soon as possible.
