I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie


June 1st, 2023 – Islip, NY – Six cadet Peace Officers were recently sworn-in to the Town of Islip’s 14-week New York State certified Law Enforcement Academy program, led by the Town’s NYS certified instructors.

The robust Academy has been built from the ground up, to better prepare recruits and current officers for service here in our Town and beyond, by providing classroom instruction in law, ethics, communication, daily defensive tactics, as well as de-escalation, Narcan, CPR and First Aid training.

“We are so proud of our dedicated and knowledgeable instructors for the invaluable training they provide, and look forward to welcoming the cadets and officers who complete their training and emerge better equipped to serve the public,” said Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

In addition to training Town of Islip Park Rangers, Harbormasters, Fire Marshalls and Long Island MacArthur Airport Security Officers, the Islip program also provides NYS Municipal Police Training Council (MPTC) to area peace and police officers, and is a recommended program to outside law enforcement agencies by the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS).

"We have watched with pride as our Academy has grown to become one of the ‘go to’ training facilities in the area, and remain committed to providing best-in-class training to keep our communities safe,” said Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
