The Dallas Junior Police Academy is a great opportunity for students to see how the Dallas Police Department operates and to observe some of the more exciting aspects of police work. Life skills are stressed throughout each session. Each student is challenged to make good choices that will last a lifetime.
The students have hands-on time with many of the different units from the Dallas Police Department including: SWAT, K-9, Motorcycle, Low-rider, Helicopter and SCUBA. Students get to ride in a squad car with lights and sirens going, learn about evidence processing (CSI)process their own fingerprints and participate in physical training. Additionally, our advanced class learns about internet and physical safety, they tour 911 / Communications Division, the Fusion Center and Crime Scene Investigations (CIS).
