The Northbridge & Uxbridge Police Departments are pleased to announce they will be resuming their annual Youth/Junior Police Academies in the summer of 2021. This is a free, 1 week program open to ANY Northbridge or Uxbridge Resident who will be entering grades 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th grade as of September 2021. The academy will run Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until approximately 2:00pm. The Academy at the Uxbridge High School will run from July 12-16. The Academy at Northbridge High School will run from July 19-23. Residents from either town are eligible for either academy.
Students will learn about the various aspects of law enforcement to include: criminal investigations, crime scene processing, CPR overview, K-9 activities, criminal law and procedure, accident reconstruction, report writing, etc.
A typical academy day consists of physical training, morning snack, morning classroom session, lunch, afternoon classroom session, clean-up, and then dismissal. Throughout the week, there is a major focus on personal accountability and respect. Attendees will be provided a uniform T-shirt.
Applications are available at either Northbridge or Uxbridge Police Departments, either department website, Northbridge Middle School or Within Intermediate School. The academy is limited to 25 students. In an effort to open the academy to new students, if you participated in any previous academy program, your application will be reviewed after new applicants are accepted. Any remaining slots will be filled with previous attendees on a first come first serve basis. Deadline for applying will be Friday, July 2nd, 2021.
