Limited Duty

The mission of the Limited Duty Basic Training program as mandated by South Carolina is to provide the officer candidate with the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to perform limited duties of a certified law enforcement officer in the state of South Carolina. The Limited Duty Basic Training consists of the Legal portions of the Basic Law Enforcement training curriculum and they must qualify in firearms at their agency before registration and submit the Firearms & EVO Affidavit at registration. Limited Duty Officers should be trained and certified within the first year of employment in that capacity.


Testing is performed each Wednesday with Basic Law.
