The Basic Police Academy Program is certified by the California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) and recognized by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).The Palomar College Police Academy was redesigned in 2016 as a modular training program.  The modular format also meets the needs of those aspiring to be Level III, Level II, or Level I reserve police officers.

For example, one could complete Modules III and II, leave the program, and then return the next year to complete Module I. Also, the modules do not need to be completed at the same training facility. A recruit could complete Modules III and II at another facility and then take Module I at Palomar College.
