The mission of the Montgomery Police Academy is to provide the City of Montgomery and other state and local agencies with professional, highly trained and effective police officers. Our goal is to furnish a disciplined environment conducive to learning and to provide professional instructions to prepare these police officers to meet the public service and public safety needs of their communities.
The Training Bureau is responsible for the training of all Montgomery Police Officers. In addition, the bureau is responsible for the operation of the Alabama Advanced Criminal Justice Academy which trains officers from other jurisdictions.
The Training Bureau administrative offices are located at 740 Mildred Street, which houses the Division Commander, Assistant Division Commander, Division Secretary and instructional staff. A regional Alabama Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission (APOSTC) Academy - the Alabama Advanced Criminal Justice Academy - is located on site and is responsible for training other state and local agency recruits in the APOSTC-required 480-hour basic course.
The Bureau also operates a Firing Range and Training Facility at 5880 Old Hayneville Road, (334) 241-2703. The In-Service Training Coordinator, Rangemaster, and a secretary staff this location. All MPD recruits are trained at this facility in a 560-hour course exceeding the minimum standards established by APOSTC. This location houses a 20-position handgun range and a tactical range that includes a rifle range, combat courses, and an explosive disposal and training bunker. All firearms instruction and qualification, officer survival courses, and major seminars are held at this facility.
The Training Bureau also provides in-service training for MPD and many other agencies. Several classes are scheduled monthly to allow officers to meet or exceed the required 12 hours of APOSTC continuing education. Most in-service classes are held at the Old Hayneville Road location.
