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 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.
