Abbotsford Junior Police Academy

Applications due November 9th!

Junior Police Academy

JPA provides an unforgettable week long experience by providing successful applicants unique opportunities which will afford them greater insight should they choose a career in policing.
In order to provide a realistic and successful Junior Police Academy, the application process is very competitive with a limited number of spots available. Eligible applicants must participate in a Physical Assessment and Interview process, and be able to attend and commit to every day of the Junior Police Academy and commit a full 50 hours to the program.
All eligible students are encouraged to apply. However, if you are unsure, unfit, uncommitted or just need something to do over Spring Break you will not be successful.
Successful applicants will undoubtedly be rewarded with many unique opportunities which will afford them greater insight should they choose to follow a Police career.
