RCC’s BLET program gets new cruisers
Students in the basic law enforcement program at Robeson Community College just got a nice surprise. They will have an opportunity to train in a new, state-of-the-art, all-wheel-drive police cruisers.
“These vehicles are replacing older Dodge Chargers and Crown Victoria’s,” stated Rudy T. Locklear, director of the basic law enforcement program at Robeson Community College. “The all-wheel-drive packages were chosen as most law enforcement agencies are trending towards this.”
The college purchased the vehicles to replace very outdated ones, according to Locklear.
“When the Fall 2022 BLET students begin their training, they will have an advantage by learning in newer vehicles similar to those used in the field today,” stated Locklear.
As an added touch, Locklear had the new vehicles wrapped with decals to match the branding of RCC.
“We marked 4,” stated Locklear.
The Fall 2022 Night BLET Academy will begin October 17.
Anyone interested in becoming a police officer are encouraged to begin the application process now. Tuition for the training is free and financial aid may be available to cover the cost of books and uniforms.
