The Youth Academy is designed to provide youth with an idea of what police work is all about. The course includes information on police training and operations, de-escalation, and crisis intervention, as well as support services inside the Police Department. Overall, the Youth Academy helps students understand how a police department operates and gives them a glimpse inside.

The Youth Academy is an outreach program created by the Police Department to improve understanding and interaction with the youth in our community.


Participants will have a clearer understanding of what the community can expect from their police and share that knowledge with others.


Applicants must be between the ages of 14-17 and live in Redwood City (or be associated with Redwood City)
