Youth Police Academy

Under the leadership of the School Resource Officers the Hudson Youth Police Academy provides 12 Hudson Youths ages 10-14 an opportunity to interact with the police officers in an effort to foster responsible citizenship and introduce them to Public Safety Services.

The Hudson Police Department Officers will provide learning experiences through lectures, role play, and demonstration. The topics of interest will include: CPR, Police K9, Patrol Duties, Laws of Arrest, and Criminal Investigations to name of few. Cadets will participate in an enthusiastic physical training program in a 'para military' setting. Cadets will also learn how to march in formation, work as a team, and valuable leadership skills.

Friday will be a 'field day' with a graduation exercise to conclude the week. The Cadets' family is encouraged to enjoy the brief ceremony to follow.

Applicants will be considered based on school and community standing. For more information, contact MPO Jason Downey at or 603-886-6011.
