Jr. Police Academy Recruit Class 8

The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department held their 8th consecutive "Junior Police Academy" for Hasbrouck Heights students. About 29 students participated.

The one week program was held from June 26th through July 2nd from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The course was led by Jr. Police Academy civilian instructor, Michael Stillman, who teaches Community Policing Class at the Hasbrouck Heights High School and has led the Jr. Police Academy for 8 years.

Police Chief Michael Colaneri, Capt. John DeLorenzo, Lt. Shawn Mullins, Detective Sgt. Joseph Rinke, and Detective Michael Colaneri Jr. provided support during each session.

On Monday evening, July 2, 2007, at 6:30 p.m., a graduation program was held in the High School auditorium.

It began with the HHPD Honor Guard. Chief Colaneri opened the ceremony with words of encouragement and congratulations.

A video of the week’s activities produced by Matt Caruso and Krysten Sears was shown, followed by the awarding of Jr. Police Academy completion certificates. Graduates become members of the Junior Police Auxiliary.

The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department offers this Jr. Police Academy to Hasbrouck Heights students at no cost. Those participating receive a "T" shirt and hat. The program is geared for 8th Graders going into 9th Grade.

Previous graduates of the Jr. Police Academy assisted and received community service credit.

Graduates of the program assist the police department during Town Day, Fireworks Program, Bike Marathon and can help with the next class.

The Hasbrouck Heights Police Department was one of the first communities to offer this program in Bergen County.

Detectives Scott Adamo and Michael Colaneri Jr. conceived the Jr. Police Academy program as a class project when they were attending the Bergen County Police Academy, and upon graduation, implemented the program in Hasbrouck Heights. ###
