The Proposed NCPD Center for Law Enforcement & Intelligence –
“The need for the NCPD to construct its own training facility has been discussed for decades. We don’t want to waste any more time. Let’s get a shovel in the ground.”
Nassau County Executive, Laura Curran – Mineola, NY – July 11, 2018
After too many years, the Nassau County Police Department, nationally recognized as one of the finest in the nation, is getting a proper Police Academy. Since 2007 the NCPD Police Academy has been functioning in an antiquated & inadequate leased building – a former elementary school. Now, plans are in the works to build a state-of-the art facility designed to accommodate the cutting edge purposes purpose and goals of a 21st century law enforcement agency – responsive to the issues of today and for whatever the difficulties that the future may hold, all in order to maintain the safety and well-being of the millions of people living, working and visiting Nassau County.

The new 89,000 square-foot facility will be located on the campus of Nassau Community College, and besides containing 10 modern multi-purpose classrooms & training & tactical facilities, there will be an asset forfeiture & a high technology intelligence lead development center, a 500 seat auditorium, a recruitment center, an emergency vehicle operations course, and it will house the NCPD’s Sensitive Compartmented Informational Facility, (SCIF – pronounced “sciff”), to process classified information.
Besides creating & providing a much needed instructive & basic training space for police trainees, the center’s focus, the center’s usage will not be limited to just police cadets. The center will also be a venue to serve the community, offering community meeting space, holding police awareness campaigns, and to promote community youth programs like: the Police Youth Academy, PAL – the Police Athletic League, Civilian Police Academy, Summer Basketball Camps, and the Nassau Community College Criminal Justice Partnership, to name just a few.
This long overdue, comprehensive facility, is expected to play a major role in preserving the safety of the people of Nassau County for today and for countless years to come. This Nassau County Project is a new day for Nassau County & Long Island and the region as a whole. The project is expected to cost $54 million bond for both construction & project management.
