The Youth Citizens Police Academy (YCPA) is a five-day course offering
the youth in our county the opportunity to learn about their law enforcement
agency. Participants learn about the
how’s and why’s of police work to include traffic stops and crime scene investigation. They will observe the functions of
specialized units such as high risk entry team and K9, will be engaged in many
hands-on exercises, and see live demonstrations by deputies.
YCPA is a great way for our youth
to communicate with officers and can lead to an interest in the Explorer
Program and possibly create an interest in law enforcement as a career.
