Youth Police Academy

Space is still available in the Frederick Police Department 6th annual Youth Police Academy. This program provides youth ages 7-14 with a close-up look at Law Enforcement and tools of the trade.

The youth will have the opportunity to learn what it is like to be a police officer, by participating in scenarios, learning about stranger danger, internet safety, having a chance to see departmental equipment, watch a K-9 demonstration, dust for fingerprints, process a staged crime scene and receive information on departmental programs. All attendees will also have the chance to attempt a physical agility course.

The academy will offer 4 sessions: July 13th, 14th, 15th, and 16th from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm and is limited to 50 youth per day. The program will be held at the Charles V. Main Training Facility located at 6424 Plant Road, Frederick Maryland. Slots are available for each day, but are filling up fast!

To receive more information or a registration form on this program please contact:
