The Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce our 3rd annual D.A.R.E. –Jr. Academy this summer. Due to an increased interest in the D.A.R.E. program, Sheriff Mildred Scott decided to implement a summer program for all (children entering) 5th and 6th grade and 8th and 9th grade in Middlesex County in the 2020-2021 school year.

This program will include the D.A.R.E. program, as well as a junior police academy. The 5th and 6th grade program will run for two weeks, from Monday, July 6th to Friday, July 17th, 8:30am-3:00pm (M-F). The 8th and 9th grade program will run for two weeks, from Monday August 10th to Friday August 21st. The $150 fee per child will include a t-shirt, a ball cap, a water bottle, supplies and a graduation party at commencement.

Our D.A.R.E. Jr. Police Academy class will be held at the Middlesex County Fire Academy, 1001 Fire Academy Way, Sayreville. Jr. Recruits will be responsible for their own lunches and snacks, as well as their own “gym style” shorts (fingertip length at least) and sneakers. Our daily routine will include roll call, platoon formation, D.A.R.E. lessons, lunch, drill, multiple demos and police lessons, and daily P.T. (physical training).
