The primary mission of the Rhode Island Municipal Police Training Academy (RIMPTA) is to provide basic training to the State's municipal, college and university police officers. This training is based on nationally accepted standards for police recruit training. Our goal is to provide coordinated, state of the art training from different perspectives in order to produce well rounded, competent, educated and highly motivated police officers.
The RIMPTA also embraces the mission of providing quality in-service training to members of the law enforcement community. Our staff will offer new programs to prepare members of the law enforcement community for the ever-changing roles and responsibilities they must assume in order to protect lives and property.
In order to meet our goals, the RIMPTA will establish an effective management team to provide training and education. Each member of the Academy staff brings talent, skill and dedication to their duties and responsibilities. It is the mission of the Academy to provide each staff member the opportunity to share their talents and skills, and grow intellectually and professionally.
