What Is The Alternate Route Basic Course For Police Officers?
This program was designed to give individuals interested in becoming police officers, the opportunity to attend a police training academy at their own expense, prior to being hired by a police department.
Although successful completion of the program does not assure a participant a position in law enforcement, graduates will have received training from a certified police academy, and are able to pursue employment as a certified police officer.
Basic Police Training commences in the Summer and Winter of each year, and is 22 weeks in duration. The Atlantic County Public Safety Academy is not a residency school, thus allowing trainees to attend from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.
