Junior Police Academy

Conducted once per year, based on demand, this popular program has become more and more successful each time! It is setup 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.
