Community members 18 years of age or older who live, work, shop or attend school in the City of Tomball are invited to submit their application.

- Felony and Misdemeanor patrol stops - Crime scene investigation - Building clearing - Simulations and live fire house activities - F.A.T.S. (Fire Arms Training Simulator) - DWI scenarios - School related crime - Trauma in Law Enforcement - Dispatch function and communications - Accident investigations
The 2019 class will run weekly on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm beginning April 2nd and culminate with a graduation ceremony on May 28th.
