While watching the start of their new career, Sheriff Eric Fagan congratulated 22 Gus George Law Enforcement Academy (GGLEA) Cadets of the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Basic Peace Officer Licensing Course, Class No. 42. These Cadets graduated on June 25 during commencement exercises at GGLEA.

The GGLEA prepares cadets to begin a career in law enforcement by teaching the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) Basic Peace Officer Certification Course.

The GGLEA Cadets successfully completed a rigorous six-month schedule of classroom instruction, training and physical assessments.

“We’re proud to have had a hand in shaping the careers of these new peace officers,” Fagan said. “We welcome these men and women to the law enforcement family.”
