The Peace Officer Training Academy will be conducting several "Basic Course for Peace Officer" and "Basic Course for Peace Officer with Firearms" programs. These are open to all New York State residents. It is anticipated that the training sessions will begin in December and continue on a monthly schedule; registration is open now. The basic course is required for all Peace Officers, and highly recommended for Civilians, Security Officers, Military Personnel, and College Graduates that are seeking a career in Law Enforcement. The training is both physically and mentally challenging.

The Town of Schroeppel will be sponsoring and registering each participant with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. Upon successful completion of the program, each graduate will receive a Law Enforcement Certificate from the Division of Criminal Justice Services, Municipal Police Training Council and Peace Officer certification. Each officer will then have up to two (2) years from the date of graduation to secure a job as a Peace Officer, and will be given a list of municipalities and agencies in New York State to which applications may be submitted.

All classes, including the firearms training, will be held at the Town of Schroeppel Municipal Building, 69 County Road 57A, Phoenix, NY 13135 (located just north of Syracuse NY). Low cost housing and access to local restaurants is available.

About the Course: Classes will be conducted on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings from 18:00 to 22:00 hours, and on Saturdays from 08:45 to 17:30 hours. Occasionally, class may be conducted on different days and/or times to accommodate instructors and students scheduling. Tuition is $1350.00 for the 99-hour basic course and $1850.00 for the 146-hour course with firearms training, with a 50% deposit required at registration and full payment due no later than orientation.
