Youth Police Academy July 13th – 16th

The Frederick Police Department would like to invite the media to our 7th 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, & 16th from 9:00 am – 12:30 pm. We are expecting 50 youth to attend each day. This year we are pleased to be working with Maryland School for the Deaf and having hearing impaired youth attend this camp on Wednesday July 15th.

The program will be held at the FPD Training Facility located at 6424 Plan Road (which is off of Linganore Road), Frederick MD 21701.
