From July 9th- July 20th the Gloucester Township Police Department conducted their first ever Junior Police Academy classes. There were 49 graduates who completed the program. The first week were cadets aged 10-12 years old and the second week was for ages 13-15 years of age.
The Junior Police Academy was a tremendous success as the partnership between our police department and our township youth continue to build and get stronger.
