Chautauqua County Sheriff's Academy

Train in the Sheriff's Academy

Since 1978, the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Academy has offered a unique program in partnership with JCC for those interested in careers as police officers. The training program provides successful graduates with up to 45 college credits and a certificate of completion from the New York State Certified Basic Police Training Course, which is a legal requirement for municipal police officers in New York State.

Most police agencies in New York state or any state honoring New York State Certified Basic Training Courses may hire a graduate of the Sheriff’s Academy and be able to put their new employee to work immediately with little additional local training.

The program is operated in a two-semester system. Upon completion of 45 college credits, a student is eligible to earn a certificate in law enforcement technology from JCC. All credits earned in the certificate can be applied toward the A.A.S. Individual Studies degree.
