Do you guys think a July academy is even going to happen because of corona? Recruits in the academy now aren’t even able to finish training how are new recruits going to start. I do hope there will be one in July though!

I completed all phases and completed my psych in the beginning of March but haven't heard from the department since, in the last email regarding my psych appt they mentioned July academy. Could COVID-19 be holding up response times? I've never done a medical yet, nor heard if i even passed or failed psych, and haven't heard anything regarding PT test. I am an active college student and I'm trying to arrange an online full-time education schedule around academy, but nervous to due to being so unknown right now. Suggests, comments, thoughts, please respond!

RELAX, Trenton has been closed, academies Closed. Right now we are just trying to man the jails. Once everything opens up you should hopefully hear something. Use this time to stay fit and prepared for ANY academy.

I’m in class 248 right now. We are not back to the academy yet. Everything you guys hear about the next academy start will be very rough eta’s. This will only make the waiting game you guys are experiencing, as well as what everyone else in the previous classes experienced, that much longer and stressful. But know once the Njdoc knows what’s going on with class 248, you guys will know a better eta for 249 and moving forward. I’d imagine Some officers from the CRU as well as the CSTA had to go back to some of the facilities (prisons) given that there has been a lot of staffing issues in the prisons. Making your process for the upcoming class slightly slowed down. But because the Njdoc needs officers now more then ever because of the virus creating issues within, your process is without a doubt still in progress.

Thanks Crabby, I know I've been freaking out, it's a stressful time! Luckily I've been regularly prepping fitness wise since November 2019. I'm going to keep it up and try to remain calm :)

About 135/140 in the class now. Started with 210.
We are doing online zoom classes, first ever in Njdoc history for academy. And we are doing PT on our own. All about integrity. Got this far, not gonna fail out of the academy because you didn’t keep up with your Pt at home.
