Training Class Update:  (07/28/2020)
Prior to sending any officer to a site for Basic or In-Service Training, agencies should ensure that no officer assigned to the training course is in the process of awaiting test results for COVID-19 or be highly suspected of being exposed to the virus. Additionally, If an Officer has tested positive for COVID-19 recently, that person must be cleared by your agency and health authority prior to attendance. TCI will not require documentation of these clearances at this time, we just request that you please follow all precautions to ensure the training environment does not promote the spread of COVID-19.
