Islip, NY – Six cadet Peace Officers were recently sworn into the Town of Islip’s 14-week New York State-certified Law Enforcement Academy program, led by the Town’s NYS-certified instructors.

The robust Academy has been built from the ground up to better prepare recruits and current officers for service here in our Town and beyond by providing classroom instruction in law, ethics, communication, daily defensive tactics, de-escalation, Narcan, CPR, and First Aid training.

“We are so proud of our dedicated and knowledgeable instructors for the invaluable training they provide, and we look forward to welcoming the cadets and officers who complete their training and emerge better equipped to serve the public,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

In addition to training the Town of Islip Park Rangers, Harbormasters, Fire Marshalls, and Long Island MacArthur Airport Security Officers, the Islip program provides the NYS Municipal Police Training Council (MPTC) to area peace and police officers. It is a recommended program to outside law enforcement agencies by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).
