Only 6 Openings Remain for Holbrook Police 2019 Junior Police Academy
HOLBROOK — Chief William Smith would like to notify residents that there are only six openings remaining for the Holbrook Police Department’s 2019 Junior Police Academy.
The course, taught by Holbrook Police officers, teaches kids the core values of integrity and discipline in a structured environment that helps to build their self-esteem and further their understanding about who police officers are and what their jobs entail.
The academy is open to students entering sixth and seventh grade, and will be held at the Holbrook Middle High School, 245 South Franklin St. from July 29 to August 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
It’s offered through the department’s Community Outreach Program, which features various events and services throughout the year meant to strengthen ties with Holbrook residents.
During the junior academy, students will attend classroom sessions with lectures, demonstrations by police officers in the areas of law, drug awareness and first responder skills, as well as physical training sessions and field trips.
The cost for registration is $75, which covers operating costs and a student uniform that will be issued to each junior officer and is required to be worn each day of the academy.
Registration is open through May 1 on a first come, first served basis with priority given to Holbrook residents. Once the spots remaining spots are filled registration will be closed.
