Basic Course For Police Officers

New Jersey Police Training Commission Mandatory Basic Police Training.

Our curriculum meets the strict requirements of the New Jersey Police Training Commission. We utilize staff instructors and adjunct instructors from Federal, State, County and Municipal agencies that we believe are the best in their field on any given subject.

Our Basic Course for Police Officers (currently 21 weeks) is designed for the newly appointed police officer and it is done in accordance with The Police Training Act (52:17B-66 et. seq.). The curriculum is approved by the Police Training Commission, Department of Law and Public Safety within the Division of Criminal Justice.

Upon the receipt of a request for an open position, a complete informational package will be sent out to the requesting agency. All PTC mandated forms would be due ten (10) days prior to the start of the class. Periodic drug screening of all trainees is conducted during the course. Positive urine tests will result in immediate dismissal. Sending agencies must supply their respective candidates with weapons and ammunition as required by the academy. All weapons and ammunition are subject to approval of the academy's range masters.
