Third Annual Youth Police Academy

The Third Annual Youth Police Academy was run by the North Plainfield Police Community Policing Unit over 4 days in July. The free program is designed to provide the youth of North Plainfield the opportunity to gain an understanding of the role of the police officers in their community. Through lectures, hands on practical activities, drilling and physical training that have been designed for the young cadets, the goal is to provide them with a working knowledge of Law Enforcement. This year there were 17 attendees that are in 7th, 8th or 9th grade.
