This free, week-long course is designed for students ages 14-18 who have an interest in the field of criminal justice. Taught by law enforcement personnel, the Youth Academy offers participants the opportunity to learn about specific elements of the law enforcement profession, such as:
Backgrounds and Recruiting
Bomb Squad Unit
Crime Prevention / Community Policing
Crime Scene Investigations
Gang Identification and Prevention
Participants also tour local law enforcement agency stations and participate in interactive and physical training exercises.
