Citizen Police Academy

It is with great pleasure Chief Richard J. Meder announces the inaugural Citizen Police Academy Class #1 this fall.  The Citizen Police Academy is an opportunity for residents to get a behind-the-scenes look at various functions within the Medford Township Police Department.  It allows our citizens to become educated as to the roles and responsibilities of law enforcement.  During classroom presentations, lectures and hands on activities, residents will gain valuable insight into daily operations, in an effort to further improve the quality of life for Medford Township residents and business owners.  

Interested residents and business owners will be required to complete an application and cleared through a background check.  Applications are due August 1st and need to be turned in at the Medford Township Police Department. The class size will be limited to 20 participants to allow for quality interaction throughout the program.  

Program dates will run on Wednesday evenings 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm from September 25th thru November 7th. 

For more information, contact Lt. Deroian.
