RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Applications for the 2016 Chief Michael Feeney Junior Police Academy are now available, and the deadline is Wednesday, June 1.

This is the third year for the academy. It will run from Thursday, June 23, to Friday, July 1. The program is open to Ridgewood kids who will be entering the sixth through eighth grades in the fall of 2016.

Last year's academy featured demonstrations from the Ridgewood Police Department, Bergen County Sheriff's Department K-9 and Bomb Squad, police motorcycles, Ridgewood Emergency Services, FBI, Ridgewood Fire Department, helicopter landing and more.

The academy "has provided a vital link between the Police Department and the youth of Ridgewood," organizers note. "Further, the Junior Police Academy has afforded students a deeper understanding of the police function, as well as an increased ability to see what the police and the community can do to serve the village."

The fee for the academy is $50 per student, which includes two shirts per student, a baseball hat, a string bag and transportation to the field trip.

You can pick up an application at the Ridgewood Police Station second-floor police desk, or print it from here. Space is limited.
