DragonNET E-Mail

What is DragonNET

New Jersey Wing has developed DragonNET as a web-based portal and application suite powered by Google.  It provides email service to our Wing. It also provides us with the rest of the Google Suite features, such as Google Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meets, Classroom, and more.

DragonNET increases the professionalism of our appearance when we work with agencies outside CAP.  It allows access from any web-connected device and is the official electronic communications method for all CAP-related business in the NJ Wing.

Your DragonNET email account is generally created at the beginning of the month, following the month that you join. For example, if you join CAP in the middle of October, your email account will generally be set up at the beginning of November.
