Kearny, NJ – On August 8, 2019, Mayor Alberto G. Santos and Town Council Members attended the Junior Police Academy Graduation ceremony held at Lincoln Middle School. Mayor Santos and the Town Council had the opportunity to meet the Kearny Police Department Junior Police Academy Cadets, the 11th class to graduate from the academy.
The Junior Police Academy, hosted by the Kearny Police Department, is a program that enables over 40 children to learn firsthand from law enforcement officers about policing in their community. This year, Kearny Police Department members Adriano Marques, Vanessa Sevillano and Jack Grimm led the children through their police academy drills and the cadets were proud to demonstrate skills they learned during the two week academy.
