The Carrollton Police Department will be hosting the Junior Police Academy during the upcoming summer months. Following the success of last year’s academy, the program is being expanded into seven week-long sessions. The first Academy begins the week of June 11, 2012. The last Academy session will begin on July 30, 2012.
The main focus of the Junior Police Academy is to expose middle school aged children to a wide range of police activities. Participants will learn about the Carrollton Police Department’s Motorcycle Unit, Crime Scene Investigations, SWAT Team, Hostage Negotiation Team, Police K9 Unit and many other exciting areas within the Department.
Applicants to the Junior Police Academy must be a current 6th, 7th or 8th grade student for the 2012 – 2013 school year. All applicants must be in good standing at their school, as well as in the community. The cost of the academy is $5.
For those students interested in participating in the Junior Police Academy, applications may be picked up at the front desk of the Carrollton Police Department (2025 E. Jackson Road) or any C-FB ISD middle school in Carrollton. Applications must be returned to the Carrollton Police Department no later than May 14, 2012.
