- Before the establishment of the Central Police Training College at Mt. Abu in September 1948, the officers of the Indian Police borne on the strength of Bombay Province (which included areas of Gujarat, Sindh Pakistan and parts of present day Karnataka) were also trained on joining the service at P.T.S., at Nashik. Since Gujarat was a part of the erstwhile Bombay State till creation of separate State of Gujarat and Maharashtra in 1961 many senior officers of that cadre too were trained in this Academy. Officers of Goa, Pondicherry and Dadra & Nagar Haveli have also been trained from time to time at this institution. Thus M.P.A. has been the alma mater of several officers of different ranks who have gone on to serve various parts of the country with distinction.
- The Maharashtra Police Academy is a pioneer training institution, which has completed 100 glorious years of its formation, producing tough and efficient officers trained in this Academy have performed exceedingly well in upholding the law and order and serving the people, thereby contributing a great deal to our society.
