One of the many great things about our Town is our Police Department. And if know a teen, ages 14-17, who is interested in learning more about the police department, how it works and what it's like to be in this field, encourage them to apply to the HPD Youth Police Academy.
It's a FREE, yup, FREE 10-week program that starts on Thursday, March 7, 2013. Classes meet every Thursday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Herndon Police Department at 397 Herndon Pkwy.
The classes sound really interesting and adults, keep an eye out for a similar program called the Citizens Police Academy later this year!
