Winslow Township Police Department Junior Police Academy
The Winslow Township Police Department is hosting a week long Junior Police Academy day camp. The purpose of the Junior Police Academy is to provide young citizens with an Introduction to Law Enforcement.
Our goal is to motivate young people to be outstanding citizens and empower them to act as a positive influence in our community. It will also transform the traditional role of the police officer into a mentor and a friend, while encouraging our young citizens to be partners in building safer schools and communities. When you bring police officers and kids together, you get better police officers and better kids.
What to expect at the academy:
The Junior Police Academy will cover a multitude of topics to include but not limited to, History of Law Enforcement, Gangs, Motor Vehicle Law, DWI Enforcement, Teens and Drug Use, Crime Scene and Evidentiary Processing, Fire/EMS Services, CPR Training, K-9, and SWAT. We will end each day with an hour of light physical training and military drill.
