Director's Message

On behalf of Colonel Ann C. Assumpico, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police and Director of the Department of Public Safety, as well as Chief Anthony M. Pesare, Chair of the Police Officers Commission on Standards and Training, I would like to welcome you to the Rhode Island Municipal Police Training Academy website. The staff at the Municipal Police Training Academy is excited about the opportunity to train the newest members of the law enforcement profession and provide the highest quality of continuing education training for current law enforcement professionals.

The mission of the Rhode Island Municipal Police Training Academy is to provide nationally-accepted basic recruit training to our municipal, college and university police officers. We will continue to produce well-rounded, competent, educated, and highly motivated police officers.

Each member of the Municipal Police Training Academy staff and adjunct instructors brings talent, skill and dedication to his or her duties and responsibilities. They are of the highest quality, and they continually strive to better educate our police officers.

It is my honor to be the Executive Director of the Rhode Island Municipal Police Training Academy. It is my personal commitment to seek out new training methods and develop new programs that will further enhance our services to members of the law enforcement community so they may continue to develop in their chosen profession.
