BOURNE –  The Cape Cod Municipal Police Academy welcomed 45 recruits this month to its first 20-week training session.

The academy, operating as a department of Barnstable County, will provide trainees from the Cape and Islands to train locally, as opposed to traveling to other academies within Massachusetts.

Barnstable County Administrator Jack Yunits explained the work that went into making this academy possible.

“You have local kids getting trained on an expedited basis, so these kids will be on the streets next year…That’s just attributed to the effort that the police chiefs are putting into making this academy a dream come true for these kids,” Yunits said.

Yunits also believes that this could lead to more expansion at Joint Base.

“This is just the start; the general would like to see a combined first responder training center there,” he said.

“That means moving the fire academy out there to join the police academy, EMS out there to join, Coast Guard, National Guard, all under one roof.”
