Rochester police junior citizens academy still accepting applications
The academy, geared to area residents aged 14 to 20, will run Tuesdays between Nov. 5 and Jan. 14 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Spaulding High School. A bus will be available to transport middle school students to the high school during the class.
"I would love to see up to 25 kids," Gould said. Potential candidates have until Oct. 31 to submit their names. Participants, who must pass a background check that includes a criminal records check, will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Preference will be offered to Rochester residents. Applications and Release of Information Authorization forms must be filled out and signed by a parent/guardian if the teen is under the age of 18, according to police.
Gould said she will also encourage participants to take part in the N.H. Chiefs of Police Cadet Training Academy — a weeklong, 24-hour academy for kids of the same age group, where she's been a staff member for the past decade.
