Does Greenville sponsor BLET applicants?
Yes. Applications for sponsorship can be obtained at the front desk of GPD Headquarters, 500 S. Greene Street. The first step is to get enrolled in a BLET program at a community college in NC. To be considered for sponsorship, we will need certified copies of your criminal history, certified driving records, a copy of your high school diploma/GED, and a copy of your driver’s license.
*Sponsorship candidates must understand that a sponsorship is a tuition waiver and is not a promise of employment and there is no financial compensation involved.

Does the Greenville Police Department take out-of-state lateral transfers?
Yes. However, transferring a law enforcement certification from out of state requires successful completion of a state exam and a minimum number of hours in Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET).
How do I apply to BLET?
Contact your local community college for their available programs, classes, and times.
