More than 80 students hailing from all eight SCCPSS middle schools were inducted into the SCCPSS Junior Police Academy on Friday, February 10, 2023. The SCCPSS Campus Police Department, in partnership with Academic Affairs, the Office of College & Career Readiness (OCCR), local businesses and industry has implemented this career exploration program for 7th grade middle school students at our middle schools.
The Goals and Objectives of the Program are to:
• Provide young citizens with an Introduction to Law Enforcement.
• Bridge the gap between today's youth and law enforcement officers.
• Motivate young people to be outstanding citizens.
• Empower them to act as a positive influence in their community through service learning activities.
• Provide students with field experiences by working with local law enforcement agencies.
Students accepted into the Junior Police Academy will be required to complete a six week Cadet Training Program. A graduation ceremony for the 2023 Class will be held in May. See photos from the induction ceremony here.
