We are currently accepting applications for the next citizen academy.

Accepted participants will be notified of the training location (Glen Ridge, NJ).

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants for the Citizen Academy must meet the following criteria*:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Have no felony convictions

*Any requirement may be waived or modified upon review and approval of the Chief of Police/ Director or designee.  

The training courses will be instructed by certified law enforcement officers from the Montclair Police Department, Bloomfield Police Department, Glen Ridge Police Department, as well as officers from other agencies.  This program offers no police certification.  Instead, the goal is to provide a better understanding of modern police practices.  Participants will also 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 30 persons and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield residents and employees will be given preference over non-residents.

A record check will be conducted on all applicants and access may be denied to those with a criminal arrest record or active warrants.  Audio and video recording of any portion of the course is strictly prohibited without the express written consent of the Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield Police Departments.

This course is FREE of charge
