Admission to the Framingham Youth Police Academy is open to Framingham residents, students within the Framingham & Keefe Tech School Districts, and immediate family members of the Framingham Police Department. 

Students will be eligible if they are entering the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades in the Fall of 2023, and will not turn 18 before July 24, 2023. Admission will be granted on a first come first serve basis. There is no cost for the program. Many families take vacations during the summer months and applicants must be available for the entire week. We are expecting the class to fill up rapidly, so only applicants willing to commit to the entire program will be considered.  

The 2023 Framingham Youth Police Academy is scheduled for the week of July 24th – 28th with graduation on Friday, July 28th at 2:30 pm. Location TBA.

The mission of the Framingham Police Department is to enhance public safety and reduce crime through the delivery of exceptional police services. Today, this is accomplished through evidence-based data and analysis and ongoing community outreach.  


Since getting sworn in as Chief of Police in December 2020, I have had the privilege of working alongside some of the finest men and women in uniform anywhere. I am proud of the service these officers provide each and every day, and even more proud of the many accomplishments and the community outreach that these officers have taken part in.

The Police Department continues to utilize evidence-based data and analysis to prevent and reduce crime. Such analysis helps our Department to see areas and patterns of concern and to act proactively in an effort to discourage criminal activity. The Department’s ultimate goal is to have more police officers on the street, making connections in the neighborhoods, becoming part of the community, and helping to deter crime before it actually happens.
