Law Enforcement Training

Certified Training for Police Officers & Agencies

Southport Police Dept. Training Academy

The Southport Police Department built our new facility with training officers in mind. We offer several classroom areas, a large bay area that will accommodate several vehicles, and a FATS (Firearms simulator) training room. We also have a dedicated staff of ILEA certified instructors that teach new recruits within our ILEA Certified police academy, and offer in-service and additional training. We believe that training is paramount to a safe and successful police department, which is one reason that we offer all ILEA approved training courses. A small portion of the training we provide is listed below.
