The Johnson City Police Department is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Department’s Junior Police Academy. The Academy will be geared toward area youth, both males and females between the ages of 15 and 18. The Academy will be held at the Johnson City Police Department training facility during the week of July 15-19, 2013.
Cadets will attend a 40-hour course culminating in a team-oriented competition that involves skills, knowledge, and abilities they have learned through interesting and knowledgeable instruction. During their week of instruction, the cadets will experience what it is like to go through a real police academy and, although not as comprehensive or demanding, the cadets will learn the same skills.
The Junior Police Academy is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a hands-on learning experience for young people in topics such as Crime Scene Investigations, Traffic Stops, DUI Enforcement, and Police Use-of-Force as well as learning about the Johnson City Police Department’s Explorer Program.
For more information, contact Officer Jaeda Burkey or Glenda Aschenback at (423) 434-6122, or complete this form. Each class is limited to 24 students.
