Updated 2020 ACBP TEST

Due to COVID-19 based restrictions the Atlantic City Beach Patrol originally planned on holding our test in the back bays of Atlantic City in groups of five (5) candidates only.  This plan has now changed. We will be holding the 2020 Beach Patrol Test on the beach at South Carolina Avenue (ACBP Headquarters) on Saturday June 13, 2020. 


Due to the current restrictions in place in the state of NJ the test format will not be the traditional ACBP test. All candidates will complete a competitive test in group sizes to be determined by the latest CDC and NJDOH social distancing guidelines.

It will be a five (5) part test. Candidates must all complete:

  • 500-Meter Ocean Swim

  • 1/2 Mile Run

  • Ocean Surf Dashes

  • 500-Meter Competitive Ergometer (rowing)

  • Candidate Interview & ACBP Instructor Evaluation


Contact HQ if you have not run yet and need to schedule a date and time. All who are returning to work must reply to email that was sent to you regarding scheduling a city physical and drug screening. All who have not responded will be removed from the active roster this week. All that responded late will eventually be contacted about returning to work. All personnel will complete mandatory COVID-19 specific training prior to starting work this summer.
