The Application process for the Junior Police Academy is now closed. All classes are full.

The Albuquerque Police Academy is happy to announce the 2013 Junior Police Academy dates!  We will have two sessions:

The Junior Police Academy will be held at the Albuquerque Police Academy, 5412 2nd Street NW.  The academy is located directly behind the Gerald Cline Memorial Substation. Classes will be held from 8 AM to 4 PM daily.

We have a limited number of spots for each session. If you know of any children from the ages of seven to seventeen (7 to 17) who are interested in attending, please have them submit a completed application to the Albuquerque Police Academy.

We will fill up fast, so please make sure they return the applications as soon as possible!  Due to limited space, we will be accepting applications from children who have never attended the academy first.

The students will participate in specially tailored law enforcement training to include: crime scene investigation, rappelling, marching, fitness training and several other topics.
