The Morris County Office of Emergency Management, in partnership with the Morris County Sheriff's Office and the Morris County Park Police Department, held our fifth-annual Morris County Public Safety Youth Academy from July 31st – August 4th. The week-long program, sponsored by the Morris County Government Board of Chosen Freeholders, was open to all Morris County, NJ residents entering Grades 9-12 in the upcoming school year. We are pleased to announce that 37 cadets graduated from this year’s program this past Friday, August 4th, before a packed auditorium of family and friends. We were honored to have Morris County Administrator John Bonanni and Morris County Freeholder Director Doug Cabana in attendance for our Graduation Ceremony. Morris County Sheriff James M. Gannon was our keynote speaker and he did a remarkable job.
With the goal of exposing our cadets to all facets of the public safety field, our cadets participated in a variety of training programs and practical scenarios with real-world applications. These activities included: Bleeding Control for the Injured (B-Con) provided by Techline Trauma; "Behind the Bars" Tour of the of the Morris County Sheriff’s Correctional Facility; Criminal and Motor Vehicle Law Lecture followed by Practical Motor Vehicle Stop Scenarios; Morris County SERT/SOG Tactical/Medical Scenarios; Live Fire Operational Training; Defensive Tactics; Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) Response from Police, Fire, EMS, and Emergency Management; Morris County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Section (C.I.S.) Mock Crime Scene; Virtual Firearms Simulator; Educational Opportunities Discussion; and our Morris County Park Police Intoxicated Driver Prevention Program.
In addition, we would like to give a special thanks to all of our partners who helped us throughout the week including Sergeant Allan Griffin of the Parsippany Police Department, Sergeant Paul Carifi, Jr. (RET) of the Morris County Public Safety Training Academy, Patrolman Christian DiGiralomo of the Morris County Park Police, and all of the staff from the various agencies who helped make this year’s program a huge success.
