2022 Midlothian Junior Police Academy Summer Camp

This summer the Midlothian Police Department School Resource Unit will be hosting their Junior Police Academy (JPA). Back after a two-year hiatus, the JPA is a camp designed to strengthen the connection between law enforcement and local youth, giving them a chance to see what it’s like to become a police officer over their summer vacation.

The JPA is FREE and is modeled after the police academies attended by Midlothian Police officers. The JPA is open to Midlothian students, ages 8 to 13. Junior Cadets will be introduced to physical training such as: competing in an obstacle course, self-defense tactics, hand-cuffing, and marching. Cadets also get a first-hand look at public safety tools, equipment and vehicles such as Patrol and SWAT vehicles and fire apparatus. At the end of the academy, students will participate in a graduation ceremony that acknowledges their endurance and hard work.

Only 30 Spots Available Per Camp
