2017 Junior Police Academy

The Lafayette Police Department will once again host a Juvenile Police Academy July 18th – 20th. This academy is for children ages 12 to 14 and applicants must be Tippecanoe County residents, as well as have an interest in law enforcement or community service.  The Junior Police Academy program allows children to participate in activities that instill a sense of community pride, self-discipline and leadership ability in an overall positive environment.  The goals of the academy are to enhance responsible citizenship, create positive interaction with police officers, and to educate young people about the challenges and responsibilities of police work.  The academy attendees will be exposed to various aspects of law enforcement including, but not limited to: Crime Scene Investigation, K9 Unit, Bike Unit, SWAT, and gang awareness


The three day academy hours are from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm each day.  Cost of the Junior Police Academy is $25.00 per student. This price includes a t-shirt, daily lunch, snacks, and a graduation certificate.  The class will be limited to 30 participants.  The first 30 paid applications received will determine who is accepted to this year’s recruit class.  Parents will also need to complete a waiver before their children can participate.


Registration and payment information can be found on Brown Paper Tickets.
