It teaches young people what law enfocement is all about.
If you’re between the ages of seven and 14, and have wondered what law enforcement is like, you can find out by taking part in the 10th annual Youth Police Academy being conducted by the Frederick Police Department.
Young people will get the chance to learn what it’s like being a police officer by participating in scenarios, as well as learning about stranger danger and internet safety. The kids will also watch a canine demonstration, dust for fingerprints, receive information on departmental programs and process a crime scene. The young people will also have the chance to attempt a physical agility course.
The Youth Police Academy will take place on July 24th, 25th and 26th from 9:00 AM until 12:30 PM at the Charles V. Main Training Facility at 6424 Plant Road in Frederick.
