    This academy is for all explorers, new and current. It’s geared towards the national competition but it is covers all topics that police officers learn in the academy. We do not go over the law statues because that differs from state to state. Our post has made this a prerequisite for any explorer who wishes to attend nationals.

    Every morning you will be woken up for a rigorous morning workout with 16 exercises and an obstacle course. After that you will have a 10 minute shower before inspection and breakfast. After breakfast there will be either drill practice or classroom learning. Around noon you will have lunch and then classroom learning or hands on training. We bring in officers from local pd’s, county dept’s, and state level to teach classes on the 12 possible scenarios competed on at nationals. After classes you will have dinner and sort through the laundry bags that were sent out that morning with your pt gear. Depending on how well the class is working as a team you may or may not have to do more pt that night. After everything is said and done for the day you will get changed into pt gear and polish your boots to a high gloss before lights out. Explorers will sleep in tents on cots on academy grounds. Obviously males and females will have separate tents. Explorers will be assigned sentry duty in shifts throughout the night and don’t be surprised if you are rudely awakened at 2 am for pt or a fire drill followed by pt. I recommend sleeping in you freshly laundered pt gear; it’s one less thing that must be worried about when scrambling for pt in the morning.

    Last year was great; the last 2 nights there were wicked thunder and lighting storms. Everyone had to run their cots into the academy because the tents were blowing over. Also it wouldn’t be a bad idea to bring sun screen if you a fair skinned, I got sunburned last year. Before academy you will be sent the Core Values and 10 Deadly Errors to memorize. You will be expected to know these and recite these often throughout the academy.

    At the end or the academy everyone will be set up on teams much like nationals and each team will compete on the 12 topics covered throughout the week. Last year we had officer rappelling off a fire academy building, we had a k-9 demo, and NJSP medivac helicopter land, and a bomb demonstration.

    I had a great time last year and regrettably probably will not be able to make it again this summer. If you have the opportunity to come it’s a great experience.

    Well...recognizing that the state of New Jersey has some of the highest police training standards, our explorer academy is not even close to being as challenging as a real deal. I believe that if Law Enforcement is a career that someone really wants to enter then they could certainly get through our academy. What we do is a peice of cake compaired to real academies. I knew a cadet who had to write a four page, hand written essay for the next day because he let the tip of a corner of the American Flag touch the ground while raising the colors. Not to mention that the New Jersey State Police is notorious for having one of the most challenging academies in the state.

    Not to forget that any explorer who comes to the academy will be training side by side with our National Youth Representative Comm. Ryan Taylor. For anyone that didn't go to Nationals, he was elected by his fellow explorers at nationals to represent our organization as a whole. He is currently organizing regional representatives, and a brand new exploring website among other things. If anyone is interested in contacting him, he can be found on Facebook along with a police explorer group.

    By the way, for clarification, what is a CAP encampment?

    It's Civil Air Patrol's equivalent to bootcamp. Around here it's a bunch of senior cadets who think they are GySgt Hartman (Full Metal Jacket). Who act as instructors for newer cadets.

    Ahhh.... explorers as DI's is BIG fat NO in our academy. AJ is coordinating it but we bring in DI's from actual academies. We bring in a Sgt. from a local PD who is a Marine DI. We also have some other really hardcore former military officers from the Sheriff's Office. They are especially badass when it comes to PT and drill. But I loved it, it gave me a taste of what to expect in a real acadmy which I will be applying for within the next two to three years.

    In the Washington Explorer Academies the TAC officers (DIs) were police officers, not necessarily Academy TACs, but still officers, no explorer staff thank God.

    However, we had EAAs (Explorer Advisor Assistants or something like that) who were essentially Explorers who had been through the basic academy and a couple advanced academies (Washington runs 3 advanced explorer academies, basic is just that, basic info, the advanced ones go into depth for: investigations; patrol procedures; and drug stuff) these EAAs from time to time will forget their place and think they are TAC officers.
