We have no claims to the music - Imagine Dragons http://smarturl.it/OriginsID http://chandlerazpd.gov/video/cpd-youth-academy/ Chandler Youth Academy is a one-week program for youth grades 7 through 12 and they must be at least 12 years old. All participants must live or go to school in Chandler. The academy provides an opportunity for the youth to learn about various jobs and functions within the Chandler Police Department. Officers from the Traffic Unit, Patrol Division, Bike Team, K-9, Community Resources and Training Section instruct students. Students get involved with hands-on activities which provides them with a valuable learning experience and procedures, such as use of force, forensics, crime scene investigation and much more. The Youth Academy was developed to provide awareness and understanding of the role of law enforcement. The ultimate goal of the Youth Academy is to foster relationships that will bridge the gaps between law enforcement and youth while exposing them to a possible future career in law enforcement. The Youth Academy is held one week during the Chandler Unified School District’s intersessions (October, March) along with two in the summer, June and July. The Academy meets at the Chandler Police Department’s Main Station located at 250 E. Chicago Street and runs Monday – Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. There is no charge for the Academy and lunch is provided. Space is limited and parents must register their child.
