The Albany Police Department’s Teen Police Academy is an excellent opportunity for youth to achieve an understanding of how the agency operates. The Teen Police Academy is free of charge. The course runs for five Saturdays and meets at the Law Enforcement Center each week for two hours.
The Teen Police Academy will cover topics that include presentations on bullying in schools, gang violence in Albany, teen drinking and driving, the effects of drugs and the overall consequences of bad decision making. You will also have an opportunity to participate in a community service project during week five. This will be an eight hour day. It is our hope that the knowledge, experiences and exchange of information between you and officers will make this one of the most enjoyable sessions you can experience. At the conclusion of the program, teens will participate in a Teen Police Academy graduation and be presented a certificate by the Chief of Police or his designee.
So, if you are ready to be enlightened and have a good time doing so, complete the application and return it today!
