We are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 to determine how best we can serve schools throughout Texas. In an effort to continue providing school safety training during this time, many of our trainings and conferences are available in an online/virtual format. Look for the red Virtual Tag next to each event. In-Person courses are being offered as we transition some of our trainings back into the classroom setting. In-Person classes are tagged in Blue.
The SBLE Trainings are FREE and cover the core topics relevant to SBLE Officers and support our mission to serve schools and communities towards creating safe, secure, and healthy learning environments for all. School-based law enforcement demands high standards, full commitment, and ongoing training in a variety of critical topics.
