Welcome to the RI Municipal Police Training Academy Website

The Rhode Island Municipal Police Training Academy (RIMPTA) was established in 1969 to train and certify all municipal police officers, except those for the City of Providence. Additionally, the Academy was given the responsibility of training police officers from several state agencies that have law enforcement powers. The Rhode Island Police Officers Commission on Standards and Training (POST), with the approval of the Commissioner of Public Safety, establishes the courses of training and sets rules and regulations relative to the education, physical standards, and personal character of candidates and trainees.
