MAYS LANDING, N.J. -

The Atlantic County Police Training Academy will soon have a new home.

Atlantic Cape Community College officials have announced that the Atlantic County Police Training Academy, operated by Atlantic County’s Department of Public Safety, will relocate from the Canale Training Center in Egg Harbor Township to Atlantic Cape Community College's Mays Landing campus.

The move was unanimously approved by the Atlantic County Board of Freeholders on last month.

The relocation of the Police Training Academy to Atlantic-Cape had been discussed in the past and officials believe it's now time to turn the idea into reality.

The academy provides various types of training, including a police recruit class for those who aspire to be police officers.

The academy also provides sworn officers with in-service training so they have the opportunity to enhance existing skills and knowledge and learn best practices in law enforcement for career advancement.
