Jr. Police Academy Program
For over twenty years the City of Lockport Housing Authority has partnered with the City of Lockport Police Department and Youth and Recreation Department to offer a Jr. Police Academy Program. This weeklong summer program introduces young participants to police procedures and objectives in a non-threatening environment and helps build personal relationships with local law-enforcement personnel.
Instructors are actual Lockport Police Officers who work with the youth on physical fitness, role playing real life situations, using radar guns in police vehicles and the camp also includes demonstrations from other law enforcement agencies. The camp closes with a day trip to a local amusement park.
The camp is open to residents between the ages of 6 – 13 and space is limited. Applications usually are available in the Spring and the program is contingent on receiving available funding.
For more information, please call (716) 434-0001.
