The Teen Citizen Police Academy is aimed at teenagers (ages 13-16) who are interested in gaining first-hand knowledge of the daily operations and procedures of law enforcement. The TCPA is a four-week course during the summer. Sessions are three hours long and will include topics such as: Police K-9, Milo Firearms Simulations, Narcotics Investigations, Evidence Collection, Crime Scene and Traffic Investigations, and Use of Force Applications. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about law enforcement and the methods used to solve problems in the community.
