Carrollton Police accepting applications for the Junior Police

The Carrollton Police Department is hosting the Junior Police Academy during the upcoming summer months for those students currently in the 6th, 7th and 8th grade. All applicants must be in good standing at their school, as well as in the community. The Carrollton Police Department is providing this opportunity for a $5 charge per student.

The first Academy begins the week of June 10, with the last Academy session beginning on July 29. The Junior Police Academy is developed to expose middle school aged children to a wide range of police activities. Participants will learn about the Carrollton Police Department’s Motorcycle Unit, Crime Scene Investigations, SWAT Team, Hostage Negotiation Team, Police K9 Unit and many other exciting areas within the department.

Applications may be picked up at the front desk of the Carrollton Police Department (2025 E. Jackson Road) or any Lewisville or Carrollton-Farmers Branch middle school. Applications must be returned to the Carrollton Police Department no later than May 3.
