THE POLICE ACADEMY (SUMMER)

CITY OF WILDWOOD

The City of Wildwood is one of New Jersey’s premier shore resort communities which boast a World Famous Beach and Boardwalk. The pristine beaches of Wildwood have been enjoyed by thousands of visitors each and every year, and the Wildwood Boardwalk is revered to have more amusement rides then Disney World. Wildwood's year round population is approximately 5,500 but this number significantly increases during the summer, and swells in excess of one hundred thousand visitors or more during the various Holiday weekends. Although the City of Wildwood is a small municipality, we maintain a larger proportionate number of the more serious criminal infractions than other surrounding communities. These indices are due to the increased volume of tourists to our small community, significantly more licensed liquor establishments, as well as playing host to hundreds of special events throughout the season. The Seasonal Law Enforcement Officers that work in the City of Wildwood can gain experience in all areas of law enforcement due to the  high volume of calls for service, which enhanced their opportunity to obtain valuable police experience that cannot be matched. The City of Wildwood is a very diverse community and only applicants that possess strong intelligence, good moral character and are in excellent physical condition, will be successful in obtaining a position within our Agency.  Officers must be level headed, professional and courteous at all times, and possess the ability to take charge of the situation and ensure proper action is taken.

 

GENERAL DUTIES

Class II Police Officers, upon successful completion of the Cape May County Police Academy, are certified to carry the departmental issued firearm while on duty.
