How does one obtain a SLEO 1 or SLEO 2 Cert?

I see most departments require a certification to apply for sleo 1 or 2.


Thanks

In order to obtain a SLEO II you must be hired by an agency and they will send you through the academy. Sometimes these academies are extremely accelerated (shore town academies) or they're extremely lengthy (GCPD / CCPA). You cannot pay your own way though a SLEO academy, at least to my knowledge.

Most people who obtain a SLEO cert go down the shore, most of those agencies will send 50 people per summer into an academy. Local towns are a bit harder to have them send you, although it does happen.

The SLEO I cert is a bit different, and a lot easier to obtain. Those academies are between 1 week / 2 weeks of training.
