The Montclair Police Department presents the return of the Citizens Police Academy. The program will consist of ten (10) two hours sessions for adults age 21 and over.

Classes will be instructed by certified law enforcement officers from the Montclair Police Department, as well as officers from other agencies. The program offers no police certification; however, classes will provide a better understanding of modern police practices and participants will gain an insight to the functions and responsibilities of police departments as well as criminal law and legal procedure.

Class size will be limited to 25 persons and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Montclair Township residents and employees will be given preference over non-residents.

A background check will be conducted on all applicants. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age. Enrollment is subject to approval by the Chief of Police and access may be denied to those will a criminal arrest record. Audio and video recording of any portion of the course is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of the Montclair Police Department.

  1. No certification but successful graduates will be issued Glocks and outfitted with Police Interceptor or Dodge Challenger

    I’m shocked at crap mpd does. I wonder if instructors get overtime or are they diverted from regular patrol duties.

  2. I could not disagree more with elcamino’s post (above).

    Montclair has a population of mid-20 year olds on misguided paths and this small effort is designed to redirect them and to give them a positive perspective of law enforcement. We need more efforts like this.
