Academy of Law and Public Safety MCVSD

Located in Long Branch, the Academy of Law and Public Safety (ALPS) is a full-time, four-year Career Academy that prepares high school students for law and criminal justice careers. Field experiences throughout the county further students' learning and help them forge connections that may lead to future employment. ALPS students can earn as many as 26 transferrable credits through dual-enrollment agreements with Brookdale Community College and Fairleigh Dickinson University. Students may also apply to become a Class 1 Special Law Enforcement Officer (SLEO) in their senior year – a year earlier than they would be eligible to apply if not enrolled in ALPS.
