2024 Junior Police Academy


The South River Police Department will be hosting our 15th annual Junior Police Academy! If you've ever wondered what it is like to be a police officer or what they do this is your chance to find out!

Meet the police officers, talk on a police radio, learn criminal and motor vehicle laws, investigate a crime scene, collect evidence, conduct motor vehicle stops, see the inside of a real jail, and more.

This five day academy will be taught by South River Police Officers and has previously included visits to the New Jersey State Police Museum, a real working criminal laboratory, and an actual Police Academy.

The academy is open to all residents of South River who are scheduled to attend 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in the fall of 2024. Instruction will be held at the South River High School between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM from June 24th until June 28th, 2024.

To participate in this exciting educational experience, pick up an application at South River Police Headquarters beginning Monday, May 6th. Applications can be picked up Monday through Friday between 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Sgt. Christopher Flores at 732-254-1150 ext 139.

Cadets will be chosen on a first come first serve basis. Class size is limited to 20 cadets. Returning cadets will not automatically receive preference over new applicants. Applications must be returned no later than 4:00 PM on Monday, May 20th.
