Nationally Recognized Teen/Police Ed Event

Today, a group of Monsignor Bonner and Archbishop Prendergast High School students in Drexel Hill (Delaware County) received certificate of completion and special awards at a Graduation Ceremony from the Teen and Police Service Academy (TAPs). 

This nationally recognized program is conducted locally in partnership with the Upper Darby Police Department and began at Bonner & Prendie during the 2021-2022 school year. 

During the ceremony the fall semester cohort for the 2022-2023 academic year received recognition in front of their families as well as Bonner & Prendie Administrators; Upper Darby Mayor, Barbarann Keffer; Upper Darby Police Department Superintendent, Timothy Bernhardt; and officials involved with the program who guided students through the program. 

A second cohort of approximately 35 students will begin the program in late January and are anticipated to graduate from TAPS in late May 2023.

The TAPs Academy is a program designed to build lasting and meaningful relationships and close the gap between teens and law enforcement.
