The Providence Police Academy moved into the American Safety Programs facility in early January. In this location, Police Chief Colonel Hugh T. Clements, Jr., plans on continuing his legacy of excellence as the 70th PPD Recruit Training Academy begins their recruitment and training process.

Safety and service are at the core of our organization, states Chief Clements. When making a decision regarding our academys location, American Safety Programs was a natural choice. Over my 30 year career in law enforcement, Ive had the pleasure of getting to know the Providence Firefighters as well as Al Peterson, the present owner of ASP. He has been a comrade in service since the late 80s. Its been powerful to watch him move into education and I know my force will benefit from learning in this environment.

With over 1,200 Recruit applicants in 2017, the Providence Police Department continues to grow each year. They felt it was best to move into a larger facility and American Safety Programs filled their need beautifully.

Our organization focuses on integrity and respect, says Albert Peterson, Owner of American Safety Programs and Training, Inc. As a former North Providence Firefighter, I wanted to create a space where education, safety, and community flourished. In addition to our educational facility, we have also created a mess hall out of necessity. The kitchen serves as a way to provide easily attainable sustenance to our service men and women so they can put their attention back to where it matters most: Learning to save lives. It truly is an honor to welcome Colonel Clements as well as the class 70th PPD Recruit Training to our facility.
