Southwestern Oklahoma State University is currently selecting participants for its 2013-14 Council on Law Enforcement, Education and Training (CLEET) Collegiate Officer Program on the Weatherford campus.

The CLEET Collegiate Officer Program is a component of the SWOSU Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement degree. 

Participants in this competitive entry program are chosen based upon their G.P.A., interview performance, fitness levels, background check results and drug screen results, according to School of Behavioral Sciences and Education Associate Dean Dr. Chad Kinder.

Successful participants will exit the program with their Bachelor of Science degree with a major area in Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement and having met requirements for full-time Oklahoma law enforcement certification. Kinder said this allows program graduates to work for any Oklahoma municipal, county or state law enforcement agency that normally sends their officers to the 16-week, Ada based CLEET Academy. 

The SWOSU Parks and Wildlife Law Enforcement Collegiate Officer Program is the only conservation oriented CLEET program in the state.  The program has a number of hands-on classes including tactical tracking, wilderness first aid, wildlife management, rope rescue, criminal investigations, firearms and defensive tactics. 

Interested parties can contact CLEET Program Director Ed Klein, at 580.774.3286 or ed.klein@swosu.edu.
