If messages went out for the physical for the next class’ alternate route, I’m guessing the issue between the ptc and the academy was resolved?

Does anyone have any info on if the academy and classes are back on schedule moving forward? I’m interested in their SLEO II classes.

I couldn't find any news story about it, but I know that they weren't allowed to "advertise" for future classes if the issue wasn't resolved. The emails going out makes me think that the article didn't have the entire story or that the issues were resolved.

SLEO II classes are appointed by municipalities, and as far as my understanding, cannot be self sponsered. As such the only municipalities that would send you to Essex for SLEO II training would be located in or near Essex county. Most of the towns that I'm aware that employ large numbers of SLEOs are shore towns and send their recruits to Ocean, Monmouth, or Cape May.
