TLETA Training

Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy

When an officer is accepted by the PCSO, they will go through a six month training and evaluation period. If it is determined the trainee is ready to be an official Sheriff Deputy, they will go through a training at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy (TLETA). The trainee must pass the course or they will be dismissed from the training phase.
