Correctional probation students are perfect on state certification exam

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (November 15, 2013) – Once again, a basic recruit class (BRC) at Tallahassee Community College has achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the Florida State Officer Certification Exam. This time, it was the 32 members of BRC 409, who graduated in October from the correctional probation officer program at Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy (PTLEA), part of TCC’s Florida Public Safety Institute.
This was the third correctional probation class to graduate through a partnership established in November 2012 between PTLEA and the Florida Department of Corrections. According to Andrea Blalock, criminal justice instructional coordinator, all three classes have achieved the 100 percent pass rate.
"We are extremely proud of these young men and women and the success rate they have achieved," said Blalock. 
PTLEA is the only academy in Florida that trains correctional probation officers. Currently, individuals who want to enroll in the correctional probation officer program must have already been hired by the Department of Corrections as trainees. However, PTLEA expects to offer the program for self-sponsored students in the evenings beginning in June 2014.
