What to teach?
"Connecting with Kids"
The core curriculum for teaching the Junior Police Academy.
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.
Designed to change the way young people perceive law enforcement in America!
From SRO’s to FBI Agents, your cadets will discover the vital role law enforcement plays in securing the safety of all our citizens. Through classroom discussions and student activities, cadets develop a deeper appreciation of law enforcement.
Cadet Handouts are provided for each lesson.
