Registration Open for Melrose Junior Police Academy

MELROSE — Chief Michael L. Lyle is pleased to announce that the Melrose Police Department will host its fifth annual Junior Police Academy this summer.

The program consists of three separate one-week sessions in June and July, which will be held at Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School with outdoor activities on Fred Green Field.

Classes run Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

  • June 25-29 (Session One)
  • July 9-13 (Session Two)
  • July 16-20 (Session Three)

The one-week classes are free and are open to children ages 10-13.

“The Junior Police Academy is a great summer program that allows students to explore the law enforcement field in a fun and interactive environment,” Chief Lyle said.  “It is a memorable experience for both the police officers and children, and both groups get a lot out of it each year.”

At the junior academy, participants will engage in a range of physical activities designed to promote teamwork and test for speed, focus and physical abilities.

Classroom activities will include learning about investigations, patrol procedures, traffic, bullying, drugs and cyber safety to educate children on the dangers they can encounter when using technology.

Space is limited to 40 cadets each week, so those interested should sign up early. Participants must be able to attend all days that the program runs during the week they sign up for.

To register, visit the forms section on the police department’s website, melrosepolice.net, or pick up an application at the police station. The deadline for applications is due two weeks prior to the start of each session. Anyone with questions should contact Sgt. Chuck Byrne at 781-665-1212 or cbyrne@cityofmelrose.org.

Melrose Police Invite Residents to Attend May Community Meeting on Senior and Summer Safety

MELROSE – Chief Michael L. Lyle announces that the Melrose Police Department will host its May community meeting on senior and summer safety later this month. 

The meeting will be held at the Milano Senior Center, 201 West Foster St., on Wednesday, May 25 from 6-8 p.m.

Topics will include popular scams that often affect seniors, such as the IRS scam, the grandparent scam, lottery scam, computer phishing scam and utility scam.

Additionally, police will provide summer safety tips to those in attendance. Residents will be reminded to always lock their vehicles, while securing valuables in the trunk or taking them with them. The community will also be advised to alert neighbors and the police department when they’re going on vacation.

“Our community is not immune to the various scams out there today and we certainly want our residents to be aware so they can avoid becoming a victim,” Chief Lyle said. “At the same time, as families head off on their vacations, we encourage them to let the police department know and we will periodically check your home if it’s going to be vacant.”

This event is part of the department’s monthly community meetings initiative, where police and other city and state officials gather to discuss a prevalent topic with residents. Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Peter J. Malionek, Vice President, Regional Fraud Investigator from Eastern Bank will be in attendance.

May’s community meeting will be the last for the spring and summer. The initiative will resume in September.
