Hello! My name is Ryan and I'm a retired police officer. I would like
to briefly explain why I made this website about Police Academies.
I started my career off as a sheriff's deputy where I worked in a jail facility for several
years. Later, I left the sheriff's department and became a police officer in a bigger city. I started like many
people, as a patrol officer first and later a detective in the criminal investigations division of my department.
As a result of my shift from the Sheriff's Dept to a Police Dept, I had to attended an academy twice. As many
people in law enforcement already know, this would not be the last time I would see the police academy. Throughout
my career, I was often going back to the police academy for in service training and other training that I either
wanted to attend or classes that I was strongly encouraged to attend (okay, forced to go to). Just like the
original police academy that I attended, there were good times and some boring times in class. Not only did I go to
my local police academy for training and sometimes instructing recruits, but I was often going to various police
academies around the country in order to attend classes and to learn more about things that were not offered in my
area. I wanted to make this website to make it convenient to find the many police/training academies in the U.S.A.
This website is for those people who either have the hopes of becoming a police recruit one day, for those who are
already law enforcement officers or people that want to attend a citizen's academy in their home town. Thank you
for visiting and please contact us at the email at the bottom of this page.
Stay Safe! Ryan
