House Bill 593 amends the Occupations Code to require the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) to establish a canine encounter training program and to require a peace officer licensed by TCOLE on or after January 1, 2016, to complete the program by the second anniversary of the date the officer is licensed. An officer must complete the training program as a requirement for an intermediate or advanced proficiency certificate issued by TCOLE on or after January 1, 2016. Any officer who has completed a canine encounter training program specifically for canine encounters determined by TCOLE is not required to complete the program under HB 593.

TCOLE established a committee effective September 2, 2015 for House Bill 593, current members of this committee are the following Chair Jason Hall  (League City Police), Jim Osorio (CELET), Bill Kristoff (Brazos Co. Sheriff), Daniel Looney (Hunt Co. Sheriff), Stacy Kirby (THLN), Captain Tyler Harpole (DPS), Pat Burnett Jr. (TXSPCA) and Bruce Stewart (Dickinson Police).

Currently CELET offers a training program for canine encounters with assigned TCOLE #62040 Defensive Tactics: Canine Encounters, listed below is the lesson plan.

Welcome To Canine Encounters Law Enforcement Training

Welcome to Canine Encounters Law Enforcement Training (CELET) We are the nation's leading training organization for law enforcement officers when it comes to officers training in canine encounters. Since 2005, we have been training law enforcement officers throughout the United States through advocacy, education, and hands-on programs, we train hundreds of law enforcement officers each year.

We are the law enforcement community's mainstream training for officers in dealings with their canine encounters. We also provide less-lethal options and specialized techniques to officers and teach officers about canine behavior and body languages to help them when they're on the streets working.

We also train officers in various other training courses across the United States as well as our main training course of "Defensive Tactics: Canine Encounters".
