Join our Citizen Police Academy |
Ever wonder what it would be like to protect the nation's largest statewide public transportation system? You can find out by attending the 15-week "Citizen Police Academy" hosted by the NJ TRANSIT Police Department beginning in late-February 2013.
Interactive classroom instruction will give participants a better understanding of the procedures, guidelines, responsibilities, laws and policies that guide police decision-making. Hands-on training includes virtual firearms training (pictured), a police driving simulator and a ride-along with a police officer.
You must be 21 years of age or older and successfully complete a thorough background investigation to participate. Citizen Police Academy recruits meet once a week for approximately three hours at NJ TRANSIT Headquarters, One Penn Plaza East, Newark, NJ, across from Newark Penn Station.
Applications will be accepted through February 14. Call (973) 491-8253 for additional information.
