The Norman Police Junior Police Academy (JPA) is accepting applications from students aged 12 to 15 years old. The purpose of JPA is to educate youth on police practices, policies, and procedures. The program's goal is to provide young people with knowledge and experiences related to law enforcement careers. Additionally, these young citizens will be empowered to act as a positive influence in our community through the servant leader mindset. The week-long experience blends classroom learning with hands-on activities to expose participants to various topics, including patrol tactics, criminal investigations, traffic safety, demonstrations, self-defense, firearms safety, internet dangers, and community partnerships.
JPA meets Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Students will be expected to be on time each day and should be picked up no later than 3:15 p.m. There is no cost to attend. Students are encouraged to bring snacks and lunch.
There are a limited number of openings. To be considered, all forms must be complete and include one recommendation, signed releases and waivers, and a short answer to the question. Priority is given to applicants residing within the City of Norman.
