Junior Police Academy *Update*

Due to the overwhelming response to this summer's Junior Police Academy and a delay in posting the beginning sign-up date at some locations, students will be selected to attend the academy based on a lottery process.  The final date to submit an application will be May 31st.  Those students selected to attend will be notified by June 5th.  Thank you for your interest in the program and for your patience during this process.


The 2019 Malden Junior Police Academy (JPA) will begin on Monday, July 8th 2019 and conclude on Friday, July 12th 2019.  The program is designed for students enteringthe 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade this fall.  The JPA will begin promptly at 9:00am and end at approximately 3:00pm each day.  A limited number of cadets will be accepted to the week long program.  You must be sure you can attend during these dates before submitting an application.  If a cadet fails to comply with the rules of the JPA or fails to cooperate with fellow cadets or staff, he or she will be immediately removed from the program.

The JPA will feature a variety of training situations in which all cadets will be required to participate.  The JPA will include, but not be limited to: classroom instruction, hands-on police tactics training, physical training, travel days to special events and more. Lunch will be provided each day.

To apply, please follow the link under the resources tab and complete the form.  An officer will contact you to confirm the child's acceptance into the program.  The deadline to apply is June 21st, 2019, however we anticipate the program filling up quickly so applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  Questions can be directed to Detective Renee Kelley at 781-397-7171 ext 1203 or
