This academy serves approximately 120 municipal police departments in Southeastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Hours of operation are 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for Basic Recruit training. It is a full academy, consisting of Basic Recruit training and Reserve Intermittent courses, with weekly in-service classes running from September through June each year for veteran police officers.

This police academy has three classrooms with 50 seats each and an information technology room with 32 computer stations.

While basic reserve training is offered at this location, reserve in-service programs are offered at the Yarmouth Police Department, the Whitman Town Hall, and the Abington High School for the convenience of this academy's constituency.
