Police LASER / LIDAR Speed Enforcement Operator’s Classes  (In-person)

The NJ Division of Criminal Justice has changed the Radar Instructor Refresher process.

Radar Instructor Refresher Classes will no longer be offered by DCJ. 

The Refresher classes will now be offered by various County Police Academies.

This refresher course is required for radar instructors once every three years.

A radar instructor/operator certificate is issued for three years.

In the third year, prior to expiration, each instructor must attend the refresher course.

DCJ will no longer send notifications to Radar Instructors that they are due for recertification.

It is the responsibility of the individual Instructor to renew and maintain their certification prior to expiration.

​Below is a list of academies offering the Radar Instructor Recertification courses.  If you are aware of other academies offering this course, please forward the information to Rich Maxwell at rmaxwell@njptoa.org​​
