The academy, located in the city of Nicolet, replaced the Institut de police du Québec in 2000.[1] The academy is administered by the Government of Quebec and has an operating budget of C$30 million, 10% of which are subsidies from the government.[2]

Prospective police officers first complete technical training at one of the 12 CEGEPs in the province offering the three-year-long Techniques policières program. After this, they must gain admission to the ENPQ, where they complete 15 weeks of intensive police training before joining a police service.[3]
