The Hackensack Police Department is proud to announce its 19th Annual Police Youth Academy, for qualified young men and women who are in grades 8 thru 12.

This year we will again be expanding to include students from all our sending districts and officers from Maywood, Rochelle Park, and South Hackensack Police Departments.

This week long program will be held Monday, August 19, 2019 to Friday, August 23, 2019.

Our objective is a week of education and fun through a Police Academy format. The five-day curriculum will include various presentations from guest law enforcement agencies, day trips, military drills, and physical training to give the student an idea of types of training involved in becoming an emergency responder.

The academy will provide each participant with uniforms to be worn each day, including graduation.

Applications can be downloaded at the link below and are due back to the Maywood PD HQ by August 1, 2019 at 09:00AM. 

Any questions, please contact Maywood PD D/Sgt. Matthew Parodi at 201-845-2900 ext. 137.
