Junior Police Academy July 26-July 29, 2021
Washington Township Junior Police Academy motivates young people to be outstanding citizens through law enforcement education. An outgrowth of community policing, this program transforms the traditional role of the police officer into one of mentor and friend, while encouraging our young citizens to be partners in building safer schools and communities.


Young people will learn and understand what police officers do and why they do it. Some blocks of instruction will include morals and ethics, K-9, crime scene, firearm training simulator, SWAT, MV stops, gang and drug prevention. There is also physical fitness and military drill conducted daily. Targeting middle school (ages 11-14), the program is a police academy for young people. 

While our graduates are not police officers, they are the community leaders of tomorrow -- instilled with an appreciation and respect for law enforcers and their role in society.
