Youth Academy

October 11 @ 09:00 - 15:00

The Chandler Youth Academy is a one-week program for youth between the ages of 12-17.  The academy provides an opportunity for the youth to learn about various jobs and functions within the Chandler Police Department. Officers from the Traffic Unit, Patrol Division, Bike Team, K-9, Community Resources and Training Section instruct students.  Students get involved with hands-on activities which provides  them with a valuable learning experience and insight into police procedures, such as use of force, forensics, crime scene investigation and much more.

The Youth Academy was developed to provide awareness and understanding of the role of law enforcement.  The ultimate goal of the Youth Academy is to foster relationships that will bridge the gaps between law enforcement and youth while exposing them to a possible future career in law enforcement.

The Youth Academy is held one week during the Chandler Unified School District’s intersessions (October, March) and in the summer June and July.  The Academy meets at the Chandler Police Department’s Main Station located at 250 E. Chicago Street and runs Monday – Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

There is no charge for the Academy and lunch is provided.  Space is limited and parents must register their child.

 

 

 

Registrations:  Registrations for each academy class will open up 30 days prior to the start date. Once the class opens up for registration, you will see a form at the bottom of this page, which you need to fill out and then you will be contacted by our Crime Prevention Specialist Blanca Quezada who handles all registrations.
