Welcome to the A.D.A.P.T. Program


  The mission of the ADAPT program is the prevention of alcohol and drug abuse among students in Texas through the increased training of campus law enforcement officers.  ADAPT are statewide training programs for campus law enforcement officers funded through a grant received from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).  


About the Trainings

There are two ADAPT trainings available to officers that work on school campuses.  One of the courses is specifically for officers that work on or near College campuses and the other course is for officers that work as SROs or for ISD Police Departments.  Both of the classes are 8 hours long and free for any officer that wishes to attend.


Seeking Instructors

Our next batch of Instructor Courses will take place after October 1, 2014. If you are interested in being considered for either the ADAPT for College Officers, or the ADAPT for SROs and ISD PDs, we are seeking instructors with a comprehensive understanding of alcohol and drug abuse among college students or high school and middle school students in Texas. Applicants must be commissioned peace officers and hold a TCOLE Instructor Certification.



FRIDAY (Focus on Reducing Impaired Driving Among Youth) is the big brother program to ADAPT.  Law Enforcement officers across the state have the opportunity to receive 8 hours of free training related to Underage Drinking and Underage Impaired Driving.  For more information follow the link at the bottom of this column to visit the FRIDAY website.
