MPTC Recruit Officer Course Training Request

This Request is for a full-time (800 hour) police academy.
* Required

Submitting this Request DOES NOT secure a seat in a police academy.

Recruit Officer Courses are only scheduled to meet anticipated demand. One of the factors in determining when a class will be scheduled and its location is a list of pending candidates gleaned from the interest we have on file asking for a seat in the next training academy. As a result, MPTC encourages departments, and those who have sponsorship to keep the MPTC informed regarding future hiring plans and recruit officer training needs.
