In-Service Law Enforcement Training (ISLET)

Johnston Community College offers a wide range of training solutions to meet the demands of law enforcement agencies. In-Service Law Enforcement Training is provided at the request of local law enforcement agencies. Courses are especially designed as in-service and pre-service education for those engaged in law enforcement activities.


The cost for in-service training courses is FREE for sworn law enforcement officers affiliated with a North Carolina Agency, otherwise you will be required to pay the designated registration fee.
