The Junior Police Academy exposes recruits to many aspects of the public safety community. Professionals from different agencies will educate recruits on current topics and trends. Recruits will gradute with a well rounded understanding of many careers within public safety.
A career in public safety requires a strict level of attention and discipline. Recruits will be taught in a similar fashion to a traditional police academy class preparing them for their future public safety endeavors.
While education and discipline are paramount to our mission, recruits will graduate with new knowledge, new friends, and an experience to last a lifetime.
