Are you looking for a paid sponsorship for Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET)? We are able to sponsor, pay, and send to BLET a cadet in the Fall of 2024. To be considered for a paid sponsorship, we require you to live in the county and follow the guidelines set out for the program. We look first at those that are currently working for the Sheriff’s Office and then to those that are in the community.
