Police Department, Summit H.S. Partner on New Program to Open Lines of Communication


SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Police Department is teaming up with Summit High School to present Police and Teens Together (P.A.T.T.) , a week-long classroom experience that aims to help build lasting relationships of friendship, dialogue, and trust between the Police Department and the students. 

Police and Teens Together is a co-curricular enhancement program that leverages the cooperative relationship between the Police Department and the Summit Public School District to further relationship building between the Police Officers and the City’s young adults.

The program began as a cooperative effort between the Union County Prosecutor’s Office and Union County Police Agencies in 2000, and utilizes a four-day curriculum designed to facilitate an understanding among Police Officers of how students perceive law enforcement and, reciprocally, provide students with an opportunity to learn about the stringent standards required of Officers as 21st Century law enforcement professionals.

“I am very excited to announce our Department’s participation in Police and Teens Together,” said Chief of Police Robert K. Weck. “Through this immersive and hands-on experience, it is our goal to listen closely to our high school students in order to best serve their needs as valued members of our community,” said Chief Weck. “We hope that P.A.T.T. opens the lines of communication between Summit’s young adults and the Department.”

The Police and Teens Together curriculum begins with students enrolled in the High School’s Law and Public Policy Class sharing their perception of law enforcement with police officers in a classroom setting. Following days consist of officers dialoging with students, sharing their personal life experiences, and giving insight into the stringent professional standards and training requirements to which Officers are held while performing their duties. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in hands-on scenarios that simulate common law enforcement activities such as traffic enforcement, crowd control, and narcotics interdiction. 

The program is scheduled to take place at Summit High School from April 27-30. For more information, please contact the Summit Police Department’s Community Policing Unit at 908 / 598-2170.
