Mission Statement

The Monmouth County Police Academy is a Regional Law Enforcement Training Academy operating under the direction of the Monmouth County Sheriff, and the Academy Board of Directors.

The Monmouth County Police Academy is the only Police Academy in the State of New Jersey to receive the Gold Standard in Public Safety from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).

The Monmouth County Police Academy offers basic recruit classes for many branches of law enforcement; we offer a wide variety of in-service training to meet the needs of the law enforcement community and prepare both recruits and seasoned officers to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Our mission is to provide the most knowledgeable, experienced staff to deliver the latest in training and technology to our recruits and in-service clients in a professional manner.

Professionalism, Character, Pride and Leadership are key words in our daily activities as we strive to develop and strengthen the mind and body of both the recruit and the veteran officer.
