Thank you for the feedback! Is your next orientation also 1230 in new Lisbon the 14th?

I’m curious as to why they have me going for PT orientation the 14th but specified I will not need to bring or wear gym attire as there will be no Physical fitness. My email specified I will be there all day from 8am til 4 which will include both Pt and Hr
If you prepared yourself physically like they’ve been telling you for the past 6 months you’ll have no problem doing the PT they made us do today

Are there approved uniform stores that we have to go to? Like a provided list? Or any uniform store that says they do the NJDOC package will work? Kinda shitty I wasn’t at todays PT orientation for the vendors that were there or the info provided. I’ll be doing both Pt and Hr orientation next Tuesday as per my email. But I’d like to stay on top of the game. Being ill only have a week to get everything I need prepared.
Thank you guys for any help provided.

There is no specific place we need to get our uniforms, however they do give us a list with a bunch of uniform stores throughout New Jersey that should have everything one would need. Going to a uniform store will be more convenient (and pricey) but is not mandatory.

Do the uniform supply stores gave an updated list, I understand you may not know 100%. Or should I wait til Tuesday to get the list of supplies and stores. Just puts me in a bad spot cutting it closer and closer to academy date.

They gave us a list of everything we need for the academy, while it’s assumed that the uniform stores they gave us should have most, if not all of the stuff on the list, there is no absolutely certainty that each store will currently have in stock everything.

I wouldn’t worry too much about missing the pt orientation, as long as you have been physically preparing. Aside from a 15-20min calisthenic workout and a mile jog, you just missed signing a few papers and some verbal information about the academy.

Thank you. Not too concerned about physical aspect, I know it’ll be hard. Only concern is getting all things ready in time as I’ll only have a week meanwhile people whom attended yesterday have two, and that is my other concern people selling out of things I need before I even get the list haha.

Any chance of you private messaging me of the list, or perhaps the list of companies to go to. I live in south ocean county. Was planning on using action uniform, if they are a provider for the NJDOC.

I’m using Action too. I would assume they have a list of everything we need as selling uniforms is their business and a few academy classes occur each year. Give them a call and say you’re in the academy, if for some odd reason they don’t have a list themselves then shoot me a pm.
