The Lawrence Township Police Department’s Youth Academy provides students with an inside look at local law enforcement. During this one-week interactive program, students will see firsthand what it takes to be a police officer, explore career opportunities in law enforcement, and learn about the day-to-day operations of the Lawrence Township Police Department. Some of the topics will be car accident investigations, traffic enforcement, crime scenes, arrest, physical control, fire safety, first aid, report writing, and physical conditioning. This program is available to Lawrence Township residents between 13 and 17 years of age. This is not a boot camp for discipline but a chance for individuals to explore and learn about law enforcement. Class size is limited to the first 25 applicants on a first-come basis. Mandatory parent meeting on July 13th at 8:00 am. Classes will meet from 8 AM to 3 PM in the Lawrence Township Police Station, 2211 Lawrence Road.
