Cherry Hill police will host the junior police academy from July 31 to Aug. 4 for children ages 11 to 14.
Registration is open only to township residents. The program’s cost is $150 and includes two sets of the required uniform, a water bottle, gym bag, and lunch provided daily by community sponsors.
Participants will explore aspects of law enforcement with a curriculum developed by the police department that will emphasize qualities such as physical fitness, staying drug free, teamwork and respect. Activities during each week will include lessons in drill and ceremony, physical training, school safety and bullying.
Participants will also take field trips to the Camden County Juvenile Detention Center and Cherry Hill’s Fire Department Central Command. Each week will culminate with a formal graduation ceremony on Friday.
The program is limited to 40 registrants to accommodate as many new children as possible. To register, visit https://bit.ly/40tPymE.
