The enrollment process is beginning early this year, starting on March 1, due to the highly competitive nature of this extremely popular summer program. With limited space and an expected wait list of attendees, Youth Academy Coordinators are seeking the best of our Morris County youth for the 2018 program.

The MCPSYA is limited to students entering Grades 9 – 12 in the fall of this year.

The Youth Academy is run and coordinated by the Morris County Office of Emergency Management in partnership with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office and Morris County Park Police. It is funded by the Morris County Board of Freeholders.

The 2018 program will be held the week of July 23 – July 27 (Mon – Fri) at the Morris County Public Safety Complex located in Parsippany. The Academy, which is uniquely designed to provide high-school students with exposure to the various facets within the field of public safety, is free of charge to cadets and their families.

“At a time in their lives when young men and women from Morris County are making crucial decisions regarding their on-going education and potential career paths, and may be considering the field of public service, we want them to experience what it means to be a first responder and be a part of the phenomenal group of public safety professionals in Morris County,” said Morris County Freeholder Director Doug Cabana.

“This is an opportunity for our great team of county public service professionals to interact with Morris County youths who are considering the possibility of a future as part of Morris County’s public safety team,” said Morris County Freeholder Tom Mastrangelo.

Sixth-Annual Morris County Public Safety Youth Academy -- Apply Starting March 1This uniquely designed Youth Academy program provides cadets with intensive, specially designed training and hands-on experience in the fields of Police, Fire, EMS, and Emergency Management. Class size is limited, and this 2018 class is expected to fill to capacity. Applications for enrollment will open on March 1 and close on April 8.

The Youth Academy curriculum is structured to expose cadets to a variety of interactive, educational, and hands-on activities throughout the week. The success of the program is attributed to the full participation of our Youth Academy instructors and cadets.

Physical training is a key part of the daily routine and is designed to follow a similar model to the training experienced by our Morris County police recruits — with appropriate adjustments made for this program. Regardless, it is a challenging and rewarding part of the overall experience.Sixth-Annual Morris County Public Safety Youth Academy -- Apply Starting March 1
