Middlesex County Sheriff's Office will be hosting our 4th annual Jr Police Academy / DARE program

The Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office is excited to announce our 4th annual D.A.R.E. –Jr. Academy this summer. Due to an increased interest in the D.A.R.E. program, Sheriff Mildred Scott decided to implement a summer program for all (children entering) 5th/6th grade and 7th/8th grade in Middlesex County in the 2023-2024 school year.

This program will include the D.A.R.E. program, as well as a junior police academy.  The 5th and 6th grade program will run for two weeks, from Monday, July 10th to Friday, July 21st, 8:30am-3:00pm (M-F).  The 7th and 8th grade program will run for two weeks, from Monday August 14th to Friday August 25th. The $150 fee per child will include a t-shirt, a ball cap, a water bottle, supplies and a graduation party at commencement.

Our D.A.R.E. Jr. Police Academy class will be held at the Middlesex County Fire Academy, 1001 Fire Academy Drive, Sayreville. Jr. Recruits will be responsible for their own lunches and snacks, as well as their own “gym style” shorts (fingertip length at least) and sneakers. Our daily routine will include roll call, platoon formation, D.A.R.E. lessons, lunch, drill, multiple demos and police lessons, and daily P.T. (physical training).
