Union County Sheriff’s Youth Academy Graduation


Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich and Union County Freeholder Vernell Wright congratulate Dean Hogan (2nd L) of Basking Ridge and Isaiah Bahrenburg of Linden on graduating as the class leaders of the 2013 Class of the Union County Sheriff’s Youth Academy. More than 70 teens who completed the program took part in the graduation ceremony at Union County College in Cranford on August 15. The Sheriff’s Youth Academy is a two week program designed to familiarize young people with the role of a Sheriff’s Officer. Also, it operates similar to an actual police academy for teens interested in law enforcement. Participants in the Youth Academy receive hands-on experience in a wide variety of emergency services and law enforcement functions and training.  (Photo by Jim Lowney/County of Union)
