The West Windsor Township Police Department is offering an opportunity for the West Windsor Township youth to come and learn about the job functions of the police officers in their community. The program will last one week with four hour blocks of instruction/activities each day. Children must be available all five days to participate. Children will have the opportunity to interact closely with police officers through activities such as physical training, search and arrest techniques, crime scene processing, K9 and drone demos and much, much more. Participants will receive a T-shirt and hat to wear as part of their “uniform.” Graduates will take an oath and receive certificates of completion during the celebration at the conclusion of the program.
