Trenton Police Department Celebrates 2021 Summer Youth Camp Graduation
Trenton, N.J. – Interim Police Director Steve E. Wilson today announced that the TPD has just completed its 2021 Summer Youth Camp, where dozens of Trenton children had the opportunity to learn about policing techniques and Trenton history while participating in multiple recreation projects and field trips in and around the city.

The annual TPD-led program, which is open for children ages 10 through 15, ran from July 12, 2021 through Aug. 20, 2021. The program is free for all participating children and their families. Topics included 911 training, K-9 operations, crime scene investigation, dusting for latent fingerprints, police photography, traffic enforcement, gang awareness training, and anti-bullying techniques.

Campers also had art classes courtesy of Art and Soul Studio in Ewing, New Jersey and attended several off-site field trips, including the Bright Meadows Farm for horseback riding, Johnson Corner Farms to learn about fresh foods and gather vegetables, and bowling at Morrisville Lanes. The program ended with a celebration at TPD headquarters on Friday, Aug. 20, 2021, where each graduate was presented with a certificate of academy completion.

“With the TPD, it’s about more than just arresting the bad guys,” said Director Steve Wilson. “We love hosting this program and seeing so many kids take advantage of it this year has been terrific to see. We thank our campers for hanging out with us and hope to see their siblings and friends sign up next year!”

Director Wilson offered his thanks to the people and businesses who donated their time and services to the TPD Summer Camp, including the TPD K-9 and Community Relations Units, the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department, the Roberts Family, Italian People's Bakery, LaValle’s Jumps LLC, and the Splash Twinz for their guest appearance at the graduation ceremony.

Trenton Police Department hosted its first week of 2021 Summer Camp for the youth last week and here is how it went! The campers spent some time in the classroom learning about policing, fingerprinting and the history of Trenton. Every day was different but all campers participated in activities during the week that included painting with Mrs. Princess from Art and Soul Studio in Ewing NJ, a trip to Bright Meadows Farm with Mrs. Francene for Horseback Riding, a visit to Johnson Corner Farms in Medford NJ, where they learned about fresh foods while gathering vegetables and concluded their amazing week with some fun bowling at Morrisville Lanes.

There has been an increase of Theft from Auto in the past month, including the theft of license plates. Unknown suspects have been taking license plates and putting them on stolen vehicles. The stolen vehicles with plates are then being used in crimes. These thefts can be very inconvenient to the vehicle owner as not only will you be required to deal with NJMVC to get new plates, but also make court appearances, where a crime or traffic violation has been committed by the vehicle utilizing their plates. Residents should make all possible attempts to properly secure their license plates and if possible take it a step further by using tamper proof screws.

We also advise you do not leave your vehicle unattended. Leaving your car unattended or unlocked is an open invitation to car thieves. We understand there are push-to-start vehicles, but it is still very easy for thieves to break a window and still drive the car away without the key fob.

Allowing your vehicle to run while unattended is a bad idea, and to top it off, it’s also illegal and a summons may be issued under Trenton City Ordinance 305-1.

Therefore, the Trenton Police Department would like to remind you to not leave your vehicles unattended, making sure your vehicles are secured and become victim during this time.
