JUNIOR POLICE ACADEMY: Today, August, 7, 2019, children from District B-3 (Mattapan) and District C-11 (Dorchester), joined Boston Police Officers for a Junior Police Academy outing at Patriot Place in Foxborough. The children were not camera shy and enjoyed taking pictures while touring the Patriots Hall of Fame interactive museum, followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant. We are happy that the children and our officers were able to enjoy a fun-filled day of learning and connecting with each other. Another successful day with the JPA!
MAKING A DIFFERENCE: On Monday, July 22, 2019, our youngest recruits from the Junior Police Academy assigned to Districts A-1 (Downtown) and D-4 (South End) visited Boston Police Headquarters. With presentations from the Explosive Ordinances Unit, the Crime Scene Response Unit and Boston Police Operations, the members of the Junior Police Academy received valuable information and demonstrations in various technology and equipment used by some of the BPD’s specialized units! After a Q&A and a “hands-on” fingerprinting trial, the recruits were treated to lunch at Boston Bowl!
JUNIOR POLICE ACADEMY: On Tuesday, July 16, 2019, children from the Junior Police Academy and Community Service Officers from Districts E5 (West Roxbury) and E18 (Hyde Park), went on a tour around Boston by land and by sea aboard the Duck Boats.
There were plenty of smiles as the Junior Officers made their way onto the Charles River where they each got a chance to take the wheel. We’re happy that the children and our officers were able to enjoy a fun filled day in the city!
BPD in The Community: Kids from Junior Police Academy Get a Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the BPD's K-9 Unit: Friday, August 10, 2018, Junior Police Academy campers from District C-11 (Dorchester) and District B-3 (Mattapan), while accompanied by Boston Police Officers, had a wonderful time during a behind-the-scenes tour of the BPD’s K-9 Unit. As you can see by the photos, kids had a great time interacting with and talking to the officers assigned to the unit while learning about their fury four-legged partners and their training methods. Special thanks to the officers for sharing their time with the kids. It’s always great to see the kids from the Junior Police Academy conversing and connecting with our officers in an informal, friendly, welcoming setting. Together we make our city safer.
