Police Academy

Police Academy

The Oakland Police Academy is recognized as a leading police training facility in the State of Michigan. Established on March 6, 1967 the Oakland Police Academy has consistently graduated high achievers over its more than 50 year history. These outcomes are due in large part to the exceptional quality of the instruction provided to the cadet or student by the police academy’s dedicated and experienced training staff; as well as access to the CREST site, a virtual live lab setting, which is one the premier training facilities in the country.

Located on Oakland Community College’s Auburn Hills Campus, the Oakland Police Academy instruction is conducted in comfortable, climate controlled classrooms utilizing the latest in instructional presentation technology, including video conferencing and wireless internet capabilities.
