Go behind the scenes and see what police officers do. The Lakewood Police Department’s Youth Police Academy will take place June 2-6, 2014 at the Lakewood Police Department. The academy is daily from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. Teens ages 16 to 18 from local high schools with a GPA of 2.0 or better are eligible. The Police Department believes that the academy serves to strengthen positive interactions between police and teens in our community. Other benefits include, opening lines of communication between police and youth, fostering respect for the profession, identifying both potential recruiting opportunities, as well as teens who show leadership skills. Participants experience hands-on activities such as slow speed driving maneuvers, making an arrest and even participating in a “shoot- don’t shoot” exercise similar to those used by police agents. In addition, teens learn what it is like to investigate a crime scene, participate in a mock trial and even interact with a live police K9 unit. Applications are available at the Lakewood Police Department Front Desk or on line and are due by April 7, 2014. If accepted, there is a $20 registration fee.
