Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich and Union County Freeholder Angel G. Estrada congratulate Megan Campbell of Hillside on graduating as class president of the 2011 Class of the Union County Sheriff’s Youth Academy. More than 80 teens from across Union County who completed the program took part in the graduation ceremony at Union County College in Cranford on August 23. 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)
