Closures & Delays

While the majority of the staff and students at the Northern Virginia Criminal Justice Training Academy perform duties as essential public safety personnel, when the Academy experiences inclement weather conditions, the safety of our students and staff is the most important consideration.

Decisions on whether to close or alter the Academy schedule due to weather are based on an evaluation of area roads and commuter routes within the tri-state metro region. Every attempt will be made to announce all decisions regarding closings or delayed openings no later than 4:00 AM. Decisions to close for reasons other than weather will be made in response to a specific emergency condition e.g. power failure, and will be communicated to all affected personnel.

All information regarding closures or delayed openings will be relayed via automated attendant at (703) 729-4299.
