Interested in becoming a police officer? The Erie County Law Enforcement Training Academy will be hosting an open house for its Pre-Employment Police Basic Training program from 12 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, 2011 in room B713 at ECC’s North Campus, located at 6205 Main St., Williamsville, NY.
The program allows students interested in law enforcement careers to complete approximately 80 percent of their mandated academy training prior to being hired by a police agency.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive an academic certificate from ECC and a New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services DCJS Phase I certificate. If graduates attain an adequate score on a civil service exam and are offered employment at a police agency, they will be eligible to return to the academy as probationary officers to complete a shorter Phase II program, which includes, but is not limited to, training on firearms and counter terrorism.
The next class begins August 8, 2011. For more information regarding program requirements, contact John Chiarello at (716) 270-5376.
