Junior Police Academy

The next Junior Police Academy will be June 20-June 24, 2022. The program has been reaching out to young people, inspiring good citizenship through criminal justice education. Our goal is to create a program that bridges the gap between police officers and young people. While the program may not produce a single law enforcement officer, the Junior Police Academy does graduate tomorrow's citizens with a better understanding of the law enforcer's role in society.

Applications are available at the Valparaiso Police Department.

Please contact Sgt. Pat Yokovich, coordinator and instructor of the JPA, at 219-462-2135 or pyokovich@valpopd.com with any questions.  Additional information is also available at http://www.facebook.com/ValparaisoJuniorPoliceAcademy.
