The Sheriff’s Department provides two programs for children ages 7 to 12 years of age. We have split this program into a junior police academy for ages 7-9 and a youth academy for ages 10-12 years of age. These programs run on three consecutive Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., and offers children education on safety, fire, and law enforcement subjects. Morning snacks are provided on each of the Saturday mornings.
