Police Academy 14 (and 15-20)

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 5, 2007 08:55 AM



Young adults can learn the ropes of the police business starting tomorrow night, when Police Explorer Post 32 returns after a year-long hiatus.

Northborough Police officers Jeffrey Noel and Scott Maffioli will oversee the program for Northborough residents who have completed at least the eighth grade and who are between the ages of 14 and 20, Noel said. The program was suspended when the previous advisor took a job with another police department.

Noel said the post will provide young adults with practical experience for a future law enforcement career and teach life skills, character, and leadership. Practical exercises will include accident scene investigation, bike and community policing, and fingerprinting.

The first meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., at the police station on Main Street. Anyone seeking is urged to call Noel or Maffioli at 508-393-1515.
