Midlothian Junior Police Academy
The Midlothian Junior Police Academy 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. This FREE camp is modeled after the police academies that adults attend to become sworn peace officers.
The academy has aspects of a "paramilitary" organization. Junior Cadets will be introduced to physical training such as: competing in an obstacle course, self-defense tactics, hand-cuffing, and marching. The camp's curriculum includes traffic safety, criminal investigations, and alcohol and drug use.
At the end of the academy, students will participate in a graduation ceremony that acknowledges their endurance and hard work.
