Islip, NY – The Town of Islip Law Enforcement Academy graduated its 6th class of cadets this week. The robust 14-week-long Academy is led by certified NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) instructors. It has been built from the ground up to better prepare recruits and current officers for service in the Town and beyond.

“We are so fortunate in the Town of Islip that our Public Safety Division comprises individuals with the skills and resources necessary to build, grow, and conduct its own in-house training Academy,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

 Classroom instruction focuses on law, ethics, communication, daily defensive tactics, de-escalation, Narcan, CPR, First Aid training, and more.
