Sinclair’s January 2016 Basic Peace Officer Training Academy application is now available via the link below.
Beginning at 0800 hours Monday, September 14th, 2015 you may submit your application to attend the academy. The application must be typed and printed SINGLE SIDED. A handwritten application will NOT be accepted. (ONLY the OPOTA health form may be handwritten by your examining physician).
Application deadline is Friday, November 25, 2015 by 1700 hours. The applicant must personally deliver the application to the Academy office.
Attention to detail is a critical attribute for law enforcement officers. Please follow the checklist included in the application packet. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
Common application issues include:
- Application not typed and printed single sided only
- Physical examination not conducted by a M.D., D.O., P.A. or C.N.P.
- Applications not including a resume
Physical fitness entry standard tests will be conducted November 30-December 4, 2015. All entry standards must be met for entrance into the academy.
The difficulty of the P.T. tests should not be underestimated. Applicants should start a physical conditioning regiment now rather than wait until the last minute.
