Youth police academy for high school students

North Hempstead Town Council Member Mariann Dalimonte, Nassau County Police Department and the Port Washington Police Department are teaming up to offer high school students, grades 9 through 12, the opportunity to learn more about the operations of local law enforcement.

The youth police academy will be held on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (lunch is provided) at the police academy headquarters, 1 Law Enforcement Way in Garden City.

“Each and every day members of our local police departments work tirelessly to keep our communities safe,” said Dalimonte. “There is a tremendous amount of work involved in safeguarding the welfare of residents across our wonderful town, and I believe the youth police academy will give our young leaders terrific insight into the daily operations of law enforcement. I encourage any student who is interested to take advantage of this incredible opportunity to learn from Nassau County’s and Port Washington’s finest.”

The youth police academy will provide a vast amount of information that will give our young citizens a thorough understanding of how our police departments function. The Youth Police Academy will include:

  • Education about various policing units, including aviation, mounted and K-9
  • Physical training, defensive tactics, and an obstacle course
  • Education about procedures, leadership, ethics, teamwork, and effective communication
  • A police academy certificate will be presented to each student at the conclusion of the event.
