The Hackensack Police Department is proud to announce its EIGHTH Annual Police Youth Academy, for qualified young men and women who are in grades 8 thru 12.

This year we will again be expanding to include students from all our sending districts and we will be joined by officers from Maywood, Rochelle Park and South Hackensack Police Departments.

This weeklong program will be held Monday April 21, 2008 to Friday April 25, 2008. Location and times will be provided upon acceptance to the program.

This year we are accepting only 80 applicants and those who participated in the program last year will have first preference. After February 15, 2008 it will be open to all students, on a first come basis.

Our objective is a week of education and fun through a Police Academy format. The five-day curriculum will include various presentations from guest law enforcement agencies, day trips, military drills, and physical training to give the student an idea of types of training involved in becoming an emergency responder.

The academy will provide each participant with uniforms to be worn each day, including graduation, courtesy of Citibank, Hackensack.

Upon completion of the five-day academy, the Hackensack Police Department will have an official graduation ceremony on Friday evening, April 25, 2008. Exact time and location will be provided later.
