Upcoming Events

The information below is via an invitation by the         (Passaic County Constables)

To all members of the (F.O.C.) following information herein below are courses that I have chosen directly from the PTC (Police Training Commission's) basic police officers training course.  For now the following courses below will be voluntary and this time, but be advised they will become mandatory by this organization for all present and future members.  Also be advised that there will be a cost for these courses, and although they will not be recognized by (The PTC) because the PTC only recognizes courses exclusively given by a New Jersey state certified police Academy.  And certificates of completion issued directly from the PTC.  The courses will be taken at an accredited college given by certified law enforcement instructors, upon your completion you will receive an certificate of completion for each course taken.

If any constables are interested members and non-members contact me immediately for further information.  Classes will start very soon.
