Our Youth Academy will not be running during the summer of 2017 because we will be offering self-esteem workshops for girls entering into the 4th, 5th and 6th grades as of September 2017.
Please check back in the future for any Youth Academy announcements.
The Youth Police Academy is a free one week program that runs Monday through Friday in the summertime. Students learn about various aspects of law enforcement such as crime scene processing, CPR, K-9 activities, criminal law and procedure, accident reconstruction, report writing, etc. Academy days run from approximately 8:30am until 3:00pm.
A typical academy day consists of physical training, morning snack, morning classroom session, lunch, afternoon classroom session, clean-up, and then dismissal. Throughout the week there is a major focus on personal accountability, respect, and manners in all that the students do.
Students are provided a uniform that they are required to wear each day. The Youth Academy uniform items which are provided are a baseball cap, short sleeved t-shirt, and water bottle. Students are required to have their own plain black, knee length, athletic shorts and sneakers used for athletic activites.
