Summer Youth Police Academy 2015
In an effort to ensure that our students are given options this summer, here is an application to the 2015 NYPD Youth Police Academy.  The YPA is a FREE six-week program in which students from ages 10-16 receive classroom training and field trips with the NYPD.  Throughout the previous year we have been able to forge relationships that have proven beneficial for the NYPD, the youth, the families and the entire communities.
