Georgetown Police Department 2018 Junior Police Academy

The Georgetown Police Department will be hosting the Junior Police Academy (JPA). The JPA is a camp designed to strengthen the connection between law enforcement and local youth, giving them a chance to see what it’s like to become a cadet police officer over their summer vacation. 

The free camp is modeled after the police academy that adults attend to become sworn peace officers. The academy is geared to accommodate Georgetown youth, ages 8 to 14 years old. Junior Cadets will be introduced to physical training such as: completing an obstacle course, marching, and rappelling.  Cadets also get a first-hand look inside equipment such as a fire truck, patrol and SWAT vehicles, and a police helicopter. Cadets will also participate in hand-cuffing and self-defense tactics. At the end of the academy, students will participate in a graduation ceremony that acknowledges their endurance and hard work.
