Nassau County Executive Laura Curran joined with Majority Leader Richard Nicolello, Minority Leader Kevan Abrahams, Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder, members of the legislature and union leaders on Monday to announce the county will move forward with a plan to build a new police academy on the campus of Nassau Community College. The facility will replace the current academy in Massapequa Park.

“The need for the NCPD to construct its own training facility has been discussed for decades,” said Curran. “We don’t want to waste any more time or taxpayer dollars on a $700,000-per-year lease. Let’s get a shovel in the ground.”
