All training is grounded in the Department’s mission statement and it is this training that introduces and reinforces the core values that are at the foundation of the Department’s success. The effects of training are evident in the judicious and restrained way that the members of this Department respond to resistance, exercise their powers of arrest, write reports and investigate crime.

The training programs of the Department stress knowledge, skill and attitude. Our instructors are motivated by a desire to achieve the highest possible levels of officer preparedness and safety.
