Teen Police Academy
Submitted By Sgt. Bryan Hinkley, Milpitas PD
Have you ever wondered how the men and women of law enforcement are trained to do their job? How a police department operates? Why do police officers wear all that ?stuff? on their belt? All these questions and more will be answered during the Milpitas Police Department?s 2018 Teen Police Academy.
The Teen Police Academy is a free 12-hour course, which starts on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 and concludes on Thursday, July 12, 2018. The academy will start at 10:00 A.M. each day and conclude around 2:00 P.M. The Teen Police Academy is based on a series of lectures and staged scenarios to allow students to experience what police officers go through at the police academy. Courses will include exposure to the Canine Unit (K9), internet crimes, SWAT, crime scene investigation, juvenile traffic laws, juvenile DUI, exposure to the use of force simulator, surviving an active shooter, basic force options, and other topics of interest. Lunch will be provided all three days of the academy.
In order to participate in the Teen Police Academy, you must be a high school student currently residing in Milpitas. All Teen Police Academy applicants will be required to complete an interview prior to confirming their selection to participate in the academy.
If you want to learn more about your police department and engage with some of your police officers, then we encourage you to sign up today -- space is limited. Contact Sergeant Bryan Hinkley at (408) 586-2527 for more information.
