APD recruits teen for police academy

The Albany Police Department is looking for eager young people to be part of their third teen police academy.

APD gave out applications to high schools for the six week session, which begins October 11th. The free event is held two hours every Saturday.

Based on feedback from previous graduates, this session will be a little longer.

"That had asked, we want to be here more. We want to be here longer. So that's why we're extending this to six weeks instead of four weeks. And they also liked the community service that we did. So that's why we added two community service into this session, instead of just one," said Corporal Phyllis Walters.

The academy covers topics such as bullying, gang violence, teen drinking and driving and more.

Organizers are accepting the first 25 applications they receive.
