LODI, N.J. -- Seventh-grade pupils at the Thomas Jefferson Middle School have until Sept. 21 to sign up for the Lodi Junior Police Academy.

The first 100 students who apply to School Security Officer Philip Gundlah are eligible.

First class is 7 p.m. Sept. 29.

The young cadets will be exposed to a variety of issues -- alcohol and peer pressure, among them -- as well as demonstrations by specialized units, including the Bergen County Bomb Squad.

They'll go on a trip to the Bergen County Law & Public Safety Institute (a.k.a., the Police and Fire Academy) in Mahwah to work with instructors, training on the same grounds as young new police officers.

The cadets will also see a demonstration at the pistol range, as well one in which firefighters conduct a "controlled burn," and tour the Public Safety Operations Center, where communications are handled for police, firefighters and EMS for various Bergen County towns, including Lodi.
