  • NYPD to get new Training Academy

    Congrats to the gals and non-gals of NYPD on getting a new academy. The potential price tag of $1 billion is a little unnerving, but hey, that's what happens when facilities are not maintained / expanded.

    My Force is going through similar problems with our Academy, but at least we have lots of land to expand on - its just that we are trying to expand / renovate at the same time as maxing out the candidate intake.

    NYPD-new academy

    Problems of progress, Pete. Aren't they grand? We, (Alabama DPS) are in need of a new physical plant for our Academy. That said, I'm always really glad when an allied agency is able to move forward in that direction. A billion dollars sounds a bit much, but at the end of the day, I suppose that what we invest at this end, will pay dividends at the other end.

      If what is proposed comes through the NYPD Academy will rival any other. The plans given in the news articles show mock subway stations, village and I believe 2 evoc course. Training would be available for up to 5,000 officers at a time.

      Improved training is finally catching on in NY. My agency, the State Courts, is spending over 30 million on a new Academy in Brookly and at the same time building an Academy upstate NY in Saratoga.

        how about they scrap the 1 billion dollar building and give their officers a raise.

        i sure as hell would never work for the wages they make currently.
