Started by Officer Pam Slaven in 2014, the camp is a way for the department to give back to the community and give the children an inside look at law enforcement. Campers get to ride in police cars, utilize specialized police equipment, learn self-defense tactics, and physical agility. They also have exposure to the motorcycle unit, EMS Ambulance, SWAT team, fire suppression vehicles, obstacle course as well as a field trip to the Ortley Beach Lifeguard station.
The Junior Police Camp has grown to 60 recruits a year. We will continue to build positive relationships within our community, starting with our incredible youth.
“I want to thank a great team and this awesome group of 50 kids. They exceeded our expectations. Have a wonderful summer and a great school year!” ~ Officer Slaven 2014
