The Academy - History

 



History

South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium (The Academy) was created in 1994 by Gavilan College and Evergreen Valley College through a California Community College Chancellor's Office Grant. From its inception, The Academy's mission was to deliver the highest quality training in the most cost-efficient manner to public safety professionals. Since 1994, nine additional colleges have joined this innovative partnership to support public safety training within their local communities.

Today, the Consortium is comprised of Gavilan College, Monterey Peninsula College, College of San Mateo, Lake Tahoe Community College, Cabrillo College, Mission College, Hartnell College, Foothill College and Ohlone College. The member college districts are: Gavilan, College of San Mateo, Hartnell, Foothill, Monterey Peninsula College, Ohlone, Mission and Lake Tahoe. The Consortium operates through a Joint Powers Agreement between South Bay Regional Public Safety Training Consortium and the member community colleges to provide training for public safety agencies in Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey Counties, and part of Alameda County, Placer County and El Dorado County.
