Junior Police Academy

The Winslow Township Police Department will be hosting a one week long Tier 1 Junior Police Academies. The purpose of the Junior Police Academy is to provide young citizens with an Introduction to Law Enforcement. Our goal is to motivate young people to be outstanding citizens and empower them to act as a positive influence in our community. It will also transform the traditional role of the police officer into a mentor and a friend, while encouraging our young citizens to be partners in building safer schools and communities. When you bring police officers and kids together, you get better police officers and better kids.
