The Morristown Police Department's Training Division is staffed by one full-time Training Officer, Lieutenant Todd King. In addition to Lieutenant King, the Morristown Police Department has several certified instructors in various areas; these instructors are extremely qualified and are certified through state, national and international law enforcement training organizations. It is the responsibility of the Training Division to ensure that both sworn and civilian personnel receive mandated training required by State and Federal law. It is the goal of the Training Division to provide the most up-to-date and effective training possible.
All officers of the Morristown Police Department have received some level of college education. Efforts are continually made to increase the level of education for all officers within the department. An on-going career and educational counseling program is just one way in which we promote education.
The training division also coordinates the annual Citizens Police Academy. The academy is open to citizens of Morristown who are over the age of 21. It is a six week course that takes place on Tuesday evenings. The department has had 22 graduating classes.
