The Training Division of the University of Houston-Downtown Police Department provides periodic in-service training to its sworn and civilian personnel. However, attendance is available at most qualified TCOLE training by active duty law enforcement employed with other agencies. In these instances, continuing education hours are reported via our partnership with the University of Houston-Downtown Police Academy or the proper documentation is provided to the students for reporting to his/her respective agency to allow for direct reporting of hours.
