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.
