FPD Now Accepting Applications for Teen Academy

franklin teen academy

Franklin Police are giving teens the opportunity to see a little bit of what life behind the badge looks like. The program, exclusively for Franklin teens, gives young people the opportunity to run police radar, process mock crime scenes, and see up-close demonstrations by FPD’s special units.

Chief Deborah Faulkner says it is vital for officers and teens to connect in positive ways. “Many young people form impressions of the police by what they see or hear somewhere else. I want teens to meet our officers and experience the reality of who we are and how much we care.”

The series of four classes runs from 10am-12:30pm on June 4, 5, 6, and 7Each session includes lunch, and applicants must commit to attending all four dates.

The free program is open to teens, between 14 and 17, who live in Franklin. Click here to apply. Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis, and will be accepted through Sunday, May 27. Seats are limited, so apply today.
