East Brunswick: Long-Running Program Gives Teens an Inside Look at Law Enforcement

EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - The East Brunswick Police Department is hosting its 12th Annual Junior Police Academy as of June 26, 2017, a program which is aimed at giving township teens an opportunity to learn what a law enforcement career has to offer and what it’s like to be a police officer while fostering teamwork, mutual respect, and tolerance.

During the academy, which runs for 5 days, teens will be visited by a wide array of law enforcement ranging from the United States Secret Service, FBI, Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office and New Jersey State Police, to name a few.  The teens tour sites such as the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office Public Safety Center, New Jersey State Police Headquarters and other exciting locations often not accessible to the general public.

 

One of the goals of the East Brunswick Junior Police Academy is aimed at educating teens so that they become citizens who are more aware of the importance of a progressive community and law enforcement partnership. Students are encouraged to get involved in their community to continue to influence positive change.  Each student who attends finds something that interests them and leaves with an appreciation of the different aspects of law enforcement.

The program also educates students about the many different career tracks in policing, not only sworn law enforcement roles, but also those roles within law enforcement such as crime analysts and technicians who are specially trained.

The Academy runs annually and registrations are handled through the East Brunswick Department of Parks and Recreation.  Registration announcements are made via social media, Nixle and other media sources a few months prior to the start of the academy.
