Selection Procedures


Applicants who are hired as a peace officer trainee and sponsored by a law enforcement agency shall have priority registration.

Applicants who earn a passing score on the PELLETB examination will be provided with the information for registering into the Academy orientation.  If the number of independent applicants who earn a qualifying score on the POST PELLETB examination exceeds the available seats allowed, a class wait list will be established.

Independent applicants who place himself/herself on the class wait list will be admitted only with the permission of the Academy Coordinator. The applicants on the Class Wait List must attend the first class meeting and be present to be considered for movement from the Class Wait List to the class; however, it will be at the discretion of the Academy Coordinator to determine if you can be added to the AJ 094 orientation class. 

Completion of the AJ 094, Orientation Course does not guarantee a place in the next available Academy course.  Should there be more demand than seats available a point system for independent cadets will be used to determine order of registration into the next available course offering.
