What is the San Ramon Youth Police Academy?
The San Ramon Police Department’s Youth Academy provides youth with an inside look at local law enforcement. The Academy, which meets daily for two weeks, is designed to inspire good citizenship through criminal justice education. This is a great opportunity for youth who are interested in pursuing a career in law enforcement.
What is the curriculum?
During the Academy, students will be introduced to the services that law enforcement provides to our community. Some of the training topics include: Laws in schools, search and seizure, drug and alcohol recognition, crime scene investigation, K-9 demonstration, traffic stops, DUI enforcement, officer use of force, officer safety, community policing, and defensive tactics. The Youth Police Academy will take fieldtrips to Juvenile Hall and to the Use of Force Simulator. All classes are taught by police officers and department personnel in their own area of expertise.
When is the Youth Academy?
The Academy Class is held once a year for two weeks and will begin June 17 through 20th (Monday through Thursday) and June 25 - 28th (Tuesday through Friday). Classes are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Is there a fee?
There is no charge to participate in the Youth Academy.
Who can attend?
The San Ramon Police Department’s Youth Academy is offered to 8th to 12th grade students who reside in San Ramon and that have not previously attended the Youth Academy. Students must not have any FELONY convictions and no MISDEMEANOR arrests within TWO YEARS. Final selection will be made by the Chief of Police or his designee.
Past Youth Academy graduates are not eligible to re-apply.
