The Center for Community Education and Training (CCET) at Alfred State College is now accepting applications for the Alfred State Police Academy, set to launch May 14.
The academy will serve recruits in both pre-employment (Phase I) and employed (Phase II) stages. Graduates will earn either the Pre-Employment Certificate (Phase I) or the Basic Course for Police Officers Certificate (Phase II). Serving as session director will be Scott Richardson, who brings with him more than 30 years of experience in law enforcement.
To access the application and to view a checklist for joining the police academy, visit www.alfredstate.edu/police-academy/application. Applications must be printed, filled out by hand, and submitted by mail to: Scott Richardson; Police Academy Director; Alfred State College; Pioneer Center; 10 Upper College Drive; Alfred, NY 14802.
After reviewing an application and verifying the submitted information, Richardson will then contact the applicant to set up an interview, during which time he will inform the applicant as to whether their application has been accepted or denied. Recruits who have been accepted will be required to pay a $500 non-refundable deposit to secure their position in the academy. Additionally, a pre-physical fitness test will take place at the start of the academy.
