  • Attend class daily

  • A meeting with the instructor will be conducted, as well as a meeting with the HCTC principle.  Depending on the severity of the violation other disciplinary action may be taken.  Written documentation of the action will be placed in the students LEP file.

 

Third Violation:

  • Depending on the violation, actions will be taken to have the student dismissed permanently from the program, as this type of conduct is not conducive with that of a student aspiring to be a law enforcement officer.  Written documentation of the action will be placed in the students LEP file.
