Weight Room

For all officers participating in our annual M.P.O.E.T.C. training program, we offer a modern, fully equipped gym and workout area, which has recently been upgraded and refurbished. We now have a professional stair-stepper, treadmills, and stationary bike, and of course numerous machines and free weights.

Job Postings

We will post any police department's job openings on our website if you request.  Please contact the Academy to have your department listed at no cost.  To make the postings more viable, we ask that there be a timeline for postings (a closing date).

Photo Identifications

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are currently unable to process requests for Photo Identifications at this time.

We continue to offer all police officers free photo ID pictures, including department labeling and lamination. We have recently upgraded the process to a new computer format. We will make arrangements to allow the printed cards to be sent to the Chief for his signature, and then returned to the academy for laminating. This process creates a very nice ID card.
Contact the Academy at (724) 935-5566.

As always, the Academy staff and the Advisory Board welcomes your input concerning the types of training you would like to see offered at the Academy. Also, where time and space permits, we would consider hosting classes, seminars, etc. that your agency may be sponsoring.

Please advise the Academy if your department has a web site and/or e-mail address where we can send updates, revisions, new class offerings, cancellations etc.
