The mission of the Newport News Training Section is to provide exceptional instructional support to law enforcement practitioners and civilian employees of the Newport News Police Department.
The Training Section, commanded by the Academy Director, is committed to the development of well-rounded professionals with special emphasis on Professionalism, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence.
The Training Section is divided into two units, each supervised by a sergeant. The In-Service Training Unit provides oversight of the Department's annual in-service training activities. The Training Academy Unit coordinates the activities of the Training Academy.
In 2012, the Newport News Police Training Academy was awarded accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA).
