Junior Police Academy

The Bureau of Police is pleased to participate in the Trip-Town Junior Police Academy, co-sponsored and operated by the Morristown, Morris Township, and Morris Plains Police Departments. Held between each summer, this two-week camp provides a fantastic opportunity for 6th, 7th and 8th graders to experience what it is like to work in the criminal justice field.

Throughout the academy, students are exposed to training in everything from physical fitness to defensive tactics, crowd control to emergency first-aid. They are provided with lectures from working police officers from the three agencies as well as the Morris County Park Police and Morris County Sheriff’s Department and conduct training sessions that are unique to the services offered by each respective agency.

Students build a tremendous sense of pride as they successfully navigate obstacles and learn tasks that would be required in a career in policing and we look forward to this event every year.
