The Junior Police Academy stands on the shoulders of exceptional individuals at the local-level – school resource officers, middle school principals, teachers, parents and Chiefs of Police – individuals who bear witness to the power of stepping beyond what is required.

Our instructors understand that the best way to reach young people is to be present and to be honest.

Yes, offering an educational program is outside the normal duties of a police officer; however, that is why the program yields such dramatic results. Assuming these additional duties communicates a simple, yet powerful message:

“I am here because I care, and because you are important to this community."

An entire generation of young Americans needs to hear those words. The Junior Police Academy is your opportunity to live them.
