Due to the nature and sensitivity of some materials, registration will be limited to certified peace officers only. Registration will also be done on a first come, first serve basis.


Class Location and Registration:

All classes will be held at the Joe Max Taylor Criminal Justice Center unless otherwise stated in the course description.

To register for courses, please contact the Galveston Police Department Training Division or complete the Course Registration Form and submit via email to the training coordinator

It is recommended that any student who has registered for a class, contact the training division prior to the course to assure the class has not been cancelled and/or rescheduled.

Every attempt will be made to notify you if a class must be cancelled or rescheduled.


Pre-payment is not required to register. However, all course fees are due at the time of attendance unless special arrangements have been previously made. Purchase Orders are accepted and departments/agencies can be invoiced.

Please make all checks payable to theGalveston Police Department

Dress Code:

In efforts to maintain a professional training environment we ask that students dress in a business casual manner.  Duty uniforms are completely acceptable; however, students should refrain from wearing t-shirts, shorts, tank tops, and sandals.  If the course is being held outside or in the case of firearms/tactical courses the dress code will be relaxed and will be further detailed in the course description.
