The Sheriff Youth Week program offers a unique opportunity for young people to explore interests in law enforcement through police academy-style training, drill and exercise programs and instructional sessions at the Monmouth County Police Academy, 2000 Kozloski Road, Freehold, NJ and Neptune High School, Neptune, NJ.
The Sheriff Youth Week is being held July 10 – 14, 2017 from 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. Each day’s session begins and ends with one hour of rigorous exercise and drill. Each recruit will receive a certificate from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office upon completion of the academy.
Recruits are taught by municipal, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
Sheriff’s Youth Week is free of charge and open to all Monmouth County residents of high school age – which means – just graduated 8th grade and going into high school in September, already in high school or just graduated from high school. Anyone interested in participating must return a signed permission slip to the Sheriff’s Office no later than June 1, 2017. Students will only be asked to provide a completed physical form once their application is approved.
