Youth Academy

This 31/2 hour program provides kids ages 7-14 with a close-up look at Law Enforcement and tools of the trade. The Academy will be held at the Frederick Police Department’s Training Facility located off of Linganore Road. There is no cost for this program. Pre-registration is required and class size is limited.

The children 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, and receive information on departmental programs. All attendees will also have the chance to attempt the departmental entry-level physical agility course (weather permitting).

There is no cost for this program. For more information please contact Michele Bowman, Public Information & Community Outreach Coordinator at 301-600-2091 or mbowman@frederickmdpolice.org.
