Junior Police Academy

The next Junior Police Academy will be in 2023. 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.
