The Junior Police Academy is a new and innovative program for our youth. A student entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in the 2013-2014 academic school year will have a chance to see what it is like to be a police officer with the Bryan Police Department. This program is designed for students to get hands-on experience and a better understanding of police work in order to assist them in making a career choice.
The Junior Police Academy will run from June 17th through June 27th, 2013 on Mondays through Thursdays only. All classes will take place from 1pm – 5pm with the exception of the opening and closing classes on June 17th and June 27th, which will be 6:30pm – 9:30pm, so parents can attend.
In order to participate in this class, students must have passing grades for the 5th six-weeks and submit a copy of their report card, parent approval, no criminal history and the recommendation of two teachers.
Class size is limited to 15 so get your applications in soon. Applications and a list of classes may be found on the Police Department web page at www.bryantxpolice
