The deadline to register for the second session of the Flower Mound Police Department’s upcoming Junior Police Academy has been extended.

Flower Mound students entering seventh and eighth grade in the fall are invited to be a part of the Flower Mound Police Department Junior Police Academy this summer. The first session is full, but the deadline to register for the second session, which will take place July 15-19, has been extended.

While attending, participants will hear a variety of presentations on drug enforcement, criminal investigation, the K-9 unit and traffic stops, and they will receive a special behind-the-scenes tour of the police department, according to the news release. In addition, the SWAT team will conduct an exercise with academy students, according to a news release from the town of Flower Mound.

Parents are encouraged to complete a registration form found online and return it to the Police Department before the June 24 deadline. Once a student has been accepted to JPA, a $20 registration fee is due on the first day of class. For more information, email Officer Buck or call 972-874-3357.
