The Princeton Police Department Youth Police Academy is a program designed to provide its participants with firsthand knowledge of the duties and responsibilities that are required of a Princeton Police Officer.  The Youth Police Academy will involve classroom activities, hands on techniques and police demonstrations. Some of the topics that will be covered include car accident investigations, crime scene investigation, arrest procedures, motor vehicle stops, building searches, fire safety, basic first aid and much more.  This program will also help to build self-confidence and discipline in its participants.  

The Youth Police Academy will be open to any students who will be entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in September of 2018, who attends a public or private school in Princeton, NJ. If a student is entering 9th grade or higher they are eligible to be a counselor and help the officers throughout the duration of the academy. If a student does not attend a school in Princeton but they wish to attend the academy, they may submit an application and their acceptance will be based upon availability. The Youth Police Academy begins on Monday, August 16th – and ends Friday August 20th from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM. To attend the Youth Police Academy, applicants must complete a registration form, a permission/medical data form, a photo waiver form and an essay, no longer than one page, stating why they would like to attend the Youth Police Academy. These forms and the essay must be returned to the Princeton Police Station (Attention: Ptl. Shahid Abdul-Karim) no later than July 16, 2018.  Participants who attend will be given a t-shirt which they will need to wear on a daily basis. Those who attend will also need to bring lunch Monday thru Thursday (lunch will be provided on Friday). Drop off will be in the police lobby between 8:00 AM-8:30 AM.

On the last day of the Youth Police Academy we will be taking a class trip to the NJSP museum in Ewing, NJ. Following the trip to the museum there will be a graduation ceremony which family and friends are invited to attend at 1:00 PM.

It is our hope that this program will not only educate the participant but that it will create a stronger bond between the police officers and the youth of our community.
