Junior Police Academy (JPA) **Updated Summer 2018**
Bridging the Gap Between Law Enforcement and Youth
Students entering seventh and eighth grade in the fall are invited to be a part of the exciting Flower Mound Police Department Junior Police Academy this summer. While attending, participants will hear a variety of presentations on drug enforcement, criminal investigation, the K-9 unit, traffic stops, and will receive a special behind-the-scenes tour of the police department. In addition, the SWAT team will conduct an exercise with academy students. The overall purpose of the program is to motivate young people while enhancing leadership skills and encouraging community participation.
The FMPD will host two JPA sessions from 8 a.m. to noon at the Police Department, 4150 Kirkpatrick Lane, for students who live in Flower Mound.
Session 1: June 18 – 22
Session 2: July 16 - 20
Space is limited; parents are asked to complete a registration form and return it to FMPD. Registration forms are available in the front office of all Flower Mound middle schools, and in the lobby of the Police Department. All registration forms are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 1.
Once a student has been accepted into the academy, a $20 registration fee is due on the first day of class. For more information, please contact Officer Justin Buck via email or at 972.874.3357.
