Police Academy Alternate Route

The Alternate Route Program has been established in accordance to the New Jersey Police Training Commission and N.J.S.A. 52:17B-69.1 an Alternate Route Candidate is a person who does not hold a probationary or temporary appointment as a police officer, but who is seeking such an appointment. An Alternate Route Candidate may enroll in the Basic Course for Police Officer provided that they meet the general qualifications set forth in N.J.S.A. 40A:14-122 and they pass the established NJPTC education standards for an Alternate Route Candidate.
