The Academy is an educational and informative program that allows young people the opportunity to learn about the issues that affect law enforcement efforts in the city and how to develop a partnership with the police department.
It is not a “boot camp” for rebellious teens or youth who have behavioral issues, the EPD emphasizes.
An application form is available on the city’s website.
