The Junior Police Academy, now in its second year, is a week-long summer program for kids in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. Cadets learn about emergency planning, public safety, and being role models, among other things. Their training includes field trips, classroom instruction, and physical fitness exercises. Two sessions are available, one in July and one in August. Visit somervillerec.com for more information about this and other summer programs for kids.
