Junior Police AcademyThe Junior Police Academy is a one-week program that helps show the participants how a police department functions and serves its community on an everyday basis. It is very important for the young men and women to be able to see that the job of a police officer may be very different from what they may have seen on television or read on the internet.

Some of the planned activities include Drill and Ceremony, Physical Training, Teamwork Building, K-9 demonstration, and Motor Vehicle Stops, among many other exciting activities that will be offered. During the week the participants will be taught to practice the discipline, compassion, and team work that our officers exhibit on a daily basis.

For further information about the Junior Police Academy please contact Det. Steve Gyimoty at (973) 761-7923 or
