POLICE BASIC TRAINING PROGRAM

The Pre-Employment Police Basic Training Program provides students with the opportunity to complete many of the requirements of basic police training (Phase 1) before being appointed as a police officer in New York State.  This program may be attended by both sworn police officers and non-sworn (civilian) students as established by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services.

The 30-credit hour certificate program is achieved through collaboration between SUNY Ulster and the Ulster County Law Enforcement Training Group (UCLETG) and incorporates all of the NYS approved pre-employment curriculum and objectives. Although the program does not guarantee admission into a police department, all requirements of a full-time basic police academy apply to this program, including physical fitness, para-military organizational development, attendance and academics.

Students may enroll in one of two formats

  • Evening and Saturday Program (Spring 2018 classes begin January 6, 2018
    Class meets on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 6pm – 10pm and Saturday, 9am – 5pm. Course ends TBA.
    (Graduation ceremony begins at 11:00 am.)

  • Day Program (next Program Dates TBD.)
