The Northbridge & Uxbridge Police Departments are planning on hosting 2 Youth/Junior Police Academies in the summer of 2018. This is a free 1 week program open to ANY Northbridge or Uxbridge Residents who will be entering the 6th, 7th or 8th grades as of September 2018. The academy will run Monday through Friday from 8:30am until approximately 2:00pm. The Academy at the Uxbridge High School will run from July 23-27. The Academy at Northbridge High School will run from August 13-17. 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 or either department website. The academy is limited to 25 students. In an effort to open the academy to new students, if you participated in the 2016 or 2017 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 13th, 2018. For additional information, please contact Officer Thomas DeJordy @ 508-234-6211 or Officer Daniel Deveau @ 508-278-7755
