The Crestview Police Department proudly provides innovative and effective programs for the city’s young people. Our Community Service Division’s Youth Academy is such a program. Taught by professional, trained and certified law enforcement officers, it is designed to establish a positive relationship between the Police Department and the city’s youth and their families.

The Youth Academy’s goals are to:

• Enhance responsible citizenship

• Provide positive interaction with police officers

• Educate kids about the challenges and responsibilities of police work

• Encourage young people to take part in other youth programs offered by the Police Department, such as the Law Enforcement Explorers.

The 2019 Crestview Police Youth Academy is a one-week, Monday through Friday program, running July 15-19. Graduation is July 19. There are two daily sessions: 8 a.m.– noon for younger children ages 7 to 9, and 1–5 p.m. for older children ages 10 to15
