Provincial Police Academy

Since 1909, the Provincial Police Academy has distinguished itself as the Ontario Provincial Police training provider and a center of police training excellence in the Province of Ontario. The mission of the Provincial Police Academy is to provide current, relevant and essential law enforcement training, education and development from basic to advanced levels.  Offering both full-time and in-service training programs, the Academy trains dedicated people who are entering the field of law enforcement for the first time and advanced training to those already experienced in law enforcement.  Members from other police services who are interested in attending courses provided by the Provincial Police Academy are invited to contact the Registrar (e-mail:donna.r.newton@ontario.ca) for a list of courses and availability.
