Ensuring your children have the tools to be safe and thrive as adults is one of the most important jobs of parents.
The Parker Police Department would like to help equip your teens with important safety skills as they head back to school, off to college or move away from home.
This class will teach your teen the importance of situational awareness and what they need to look for to keep themselves safe and to help prevent crime. They will also learn to look for behavioral signs that may lead to aggression in personal relationships.
This class will be offered Thursday, July 25 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Class size will be limited to 40 and Town of Parker teens will be given preference. This class is designed for young people 13 years-old and up.
Teen Police Academy
9:00 a.m.-Noon Mon-Fri
Regestration is closed.
SWAT demonstrations, a mock crime scene and a high speed driving track are just a few of the activities in the first ever Parker Teen Police Academy. We’re inviting Parker area teens who are interested in a career in law enforcement or who just want to check out all of the cool things that we do to spend 15 hours with us this summer. July 22-26, from 9:00 a.m. to noon, teens will learn about the Parker Police Department and its programs from the Officers who run them. These interactive classes will give Parker teens working knowledge of what their police department does and how we impact the community.
Whether it’s fast cars, smart dogs or solving whodunit we’re excited to offer these unique experiences to Parker high school aged teens. If you are interested in attending our Teen Police Academy registration opens July 1 on our website and your application must be submitted by July 7.
In order to participate in the program we ask that all applicants are able to attend all five classes.
