Onondaga Community College Central New York Police Academy recently celebrated its latest class of future law enforcement officers. Seven recruits battled their way through the rigorous program which lasted approximately 10 months and included 650 hours of training in the following areas:
- Administration of Justice
- Community Interaction
- Introduction to law Enforcement
- Laws of New York State
- Law Enforcement Skills
- Mass Casualties and Major Events
Candidates also focused on physical training three nights a week and Saturday mornings.
Graduates of OCC’s Central New York Police Academy are highly regarded in law enforcement circles. This was the first pre-employment program to be authorized by the New York State Division of Criminal Services in 2003. It is led by Training Director Michael Asmolik, a retired Sergeant with the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department.
