“This is a wonderful opportunity for youth to experience a little of what policing is all about.” says Junior Police Academy Coordinator Cst. Deanna Dixon. “We have been privileged to work with such an engaging, enthusiastic group of students - and we’re hopeful we’ll see some of them return to APD in the future as recruit applicants!”

JUNIOR ACADEMY GIVES AN INSIDE LOOK AT POLICE WORK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

ongratulations to twenty-eight grade eleven and twelve students from Abbotsford high schools, who spent the past week learning about what it is like to be a police officer. 

 

Activities included learning basic law, practicing police control tactics/self-defense, and a day at the firearms range.

Today, the students will apply what they have learned during the week at a scenario-based training day, where they will be challenged as “police officers” to resolve problems. 

 

 

 

The Junior Police Academy runs for one week, once a year. For more information about this program, including how to apply for future academies, please visit our website here.
