Junior Police Academy

Conducted once per year, based on demand, this popular program has become more and more successful each time! It is set up to provide middle school-aged boys and girls with a week-long snapshot of what it is like to be a police officer. All "recruits" are awarded certificates of completion at a graduation ceremony. 

Junior Police Academy Registration: Applications are now closed for the 2022 Junior Police Academy as we have reached our maximum number of participants.  If you would like to request to be added to a waiting list, please email SRO/Ptl. Juliano at: wjuliano@peqtwp.org
