In response to a growing interest for a Modular Police Academy in Tehachapi, Cerro Coso Community College has announced that in January they will be offering a Police Academy at their Tehachapi campus. Classes will begin with an orientation on Jan. 18, 2020 and classes will run from Jan. 22 to March 16. The part-time modular format Police Academy is fully certified by POST and meets the requirements for hire at agencies statewide with the exceptions of LAPD and CHP. The fee for the initial module is $253 and includes ammunition, duty belts and holster, a bulletproof vest, first aid kit and text books. Students will be responsible for purchasing uniform, personal firearm, duty boots and DOJ/Livescan clearance. Other forms are also required and are available on the Cerro Coso website.
