Junior Police Academy

The Rocklin Police Department every year partners with us to bring an amazing program to Rocklin youth called the Junior Police Academy (JPA).  The Junior Police Academy gives local youth a small peek into the world of law enforcement. The JPA training officers will lead the cadets through a modified Police Academy.  This academy will simulate and give the cadets an idea of what it takes to be an officer.  It is designed to build long lasting memories and give the cadets a glimpse into the rewarding career of law enforcement. Our Academy will include patrol tactics, vehicle stops, crime scene investigation, and much more.  The cadets will also get to see some of the specialty units at the department like SWAT, Motors, and EOD (bomb squad). 

JPA is a program that you apply for by an application and short essay. It is limited to 20 Cadets per academy.  JPA is open to Rocklin residents who are entering 7th, 8th or 9th grade. 

The dates for the 2018 JPA have not been set.  When they dates are set they will be announced on social media and this website.  The program runs Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m for one week. The program cost 20 dollars per cadet.  Cadets will get a t-shirt, course binder, snacks and certificate upon completion. 

The Application can be downloaded here approximately two weeks prior to enrollment.  They will also be available for pick up at Rocklin Police Station at that same time.  If you would like more information about this program or others.
