Monmouth County high school aged children who are considering a career in law enforcement have an extraordinary opportunity this summer. For the 26th year, the Sheriff’s Office is conducting it’s challenging Youth Week program.
Sheriff Shaun Golden today announced that the program will take place July 9-13 at the Monmouth County Police Academy in Freehold Township. Applications are being accepted until June 9th. Background checks will be performed on all applicants.
“I’m very proud that many of our graduates discovered law enforcement as a career choice at Sheriff Youth Week and have gone on to professions in law enforcement and public safety,” Sheriff Golden said.
“Recruits” report daily to the Police Academy, by 7:45 AM with the day ending at 4:00 PM. Each day is filled with academic instruction as well as drill, physical training and ceremonies. Sheriff Youth Week concludes with a formal graduation ceremony on Friday at the Monmouth County Police Academy, with parents and friends encouraged to attend.
