Basic Refresher Course - Class 2021   

The Basic Refresher course offered at MLEOTA covers 200 hours of mandated curriculum by BLEOST for Mississippi. Training included in the course are street gangs of Mississippi, high-risk traffic stops, and felony take-down traffic stops in low light/nighttime conditions.

The deadline for Basic Refresher applications for the 2021 class is Monday, October 4, 2021.  NO applicants will be accepted after the deadline, so that an accurate headcount can be determined for the class. Due to the training regimen, this is a 6-week course, wherein some night classes are scheduled in the evening hours.

As required by BLEOST, a mandatory Pre-Entrance PT test is given to each officer prior to admission into training. The Pre-Entrance PT test will be conducted on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at 4:00 P.M. in the gym at MLEOTA.  Officers failing the Pre-Entrance PT test may re-test anytime at MLEOTA prior to the first class. 

A wellness program is instituted into the MLEOTA program for Basic Refresher classes.  This program is a very menial program consisting of running/walking, stretching and cardio exercises to help prevent muscle strains and pulls. The wellness program is important due to the officer safety-mechanics of arrest-restraint and control portion of the training to help prevent injury to officers during training.

Basic Refresher students must check in on Sunday, October 10, 2021, by 2:00 P.M.  Supper meal on Sunday evenings will be “on your own” since the cafeteria will not be operating on Sunday evenings.
