FY 2018 BLEA Cost-Share

The Legislature mandated a 25% (plus ammunition) cost-share for all each recruit. The sponsoring agency will be billed after the first day of class and payment is expected prior to graduation. Non-mandated agencies are responsible for the full-cost, to include lodging and meals. Please see the following description:

Mandated Agencies: City, County, State Universities, Dept. of Fish & Wildlife, Railroad 

Non-Mandated Agencies:
Tribal Police, Gambling Commission, Liquor & Cannabis Board, WA State Parks & Recreation, Arson Investigators, DNR and Reserves. Please contact the BLEA Registrar for any questions regarding session costs.

Lodging Eligibility: Academy recruits whose "home agency" exceeds forty (40) miles, from the Criminal Justice Training Center are considered non-commuting attendees. These students are therefore eligible to receive lodging and meal services provided by the WSCJTC, as outlined in RCW 43.101.200 (2). Recruits who do not meet eligibility requirements for lodging may request to be placed on "non-mandated" status at the time of application. Meal cards can be purchases separately and will be direct-billed to the sponsoring agency.
