New Jersey Police Academies

Police academies in New Jersey are typically operated on a county basis through regional agreements with law enforcement agencies within the county. All academies must be certified by the New Jersey Police Training Commission to provide basic police training. Several state agencies, such as the New Jersey State Police and New Jersey Department of Corrections also operate their own academies. New Jersey police academies may offer alternate route certificates, allowing recruits to pay their own way through the academy and then be hired by a department.
