It starts with a police officer and a room full of kids
For over two decades, the Junior Police Academy has supported the efforts of police officers across the country who know first-hand the power of reaching out to the young people in their community.
Take it from me...
“Junior Police Academy bridges the tremendous gap between today's youth and law enforcement officers.” stated Chief Thomas Clemons (Seward, Alaska). “I know from experience, JPA has lasting impact on a youngster’s attitude toward public safety and their role as a citizen.”
It's time to step up.

- School safety
- The bond between police officers and citizens
- Inspiring young people to contribute to the life of their community
...these are at the very heart of the Junior Police Academy.
