Pearland Police Department Teen Citizens Police Academy
Pearland Police Department Teen Citizens Police Academy is back! The Pearland Police Department as a department had the honor of teaching, building and fostering relationships with these cool teens. They learned about crisis negotiations, First Aid/CPR, Drone/ SWAT operations, CSI (Crime Scene Investigations), dispatch, and K9. After a week of learning about different divisions within their Police Department class #9 graduated on July 21, 2022.
The Teen Citizens Police Academy is an educational and informative program modeled after the Pearland Citizens Police Academy. The teen academy is designed to give young people the opportunity to learn about the Pearland Police Department and its operations in an effort to demonstrate the benefits of law enforcement and community policing in this city. The academy also gives the department an opportunity to interact with teens within the community and solicit their feedback and ideas through discussion of relevant issues. Through this free one week academy course students will acquire knowledge and understanding of the functions and responsibilities of individuals providing law enforcement services in Pearland.
This is the Pearland Police Department’s summer outreach initiative so next summer they will do it again. Continue monitoring the Pearland Police Department Facebook page and it will be posted.
