The mission of the ECPD Junior Police Academy is to enrich our agency’s connections with the children of Eau Claire and foster lasting partnerships to motivate children to become responsible citizens.
The Junior Police Academy provides a comfortable setting allowing youth to interact on a personal level with officers. This allows us to transform the traditional role of an officer into one of a mentor, neighbor, role model and friend. Students will receive insight into the functions of law enforcement and how the Eau Claire Police Department serves our community.
Each academy session is comprised of 30 youth ranging in ages from 12 to 17 years old. The sessions are held for one week, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. with a graduation ceremony for family to attend on Friday evening.
Junior Police Academy Dates for 2020 are:
July 13th - 17th
July 27th - 31st
The Junior Police Academy is free to all applicants. This is made possible by the wonderful support of our community.
