Teen Police Academy


The San Leandro Police Department is currently accepting applications for the upcoming 2015 Teen Police Academy.  This class is open to the first 24 qualified applicants between the ages of 14 and 18 who reside, attend school, or work in San Leandro. 

The Teen Police Academy will be June 30, 2015 - July 30, 2015.   Classes will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 2pm -5pm.

The Teen Police Academy provides San Leandro teens with an understanding of the San Leandro Police Department and its role within our community.  During the Academy, members of the Department will provide instruction to the students in various areas of law enforcement, including patrol operations, traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, crime prevention, public safety dispatching, SWAT, police K-9unit, and others.  The Academy will also focus on leadership development, personal responsibility and camaraderie.

Students will be offered the chance to go on a patrol ride-along with an officer, to obtain first-hand experience of what patrol officers do on a daily basis. 

Interested applicants will be required to complete and submit an application to the Academy Coordinator, Sandy Colwell.  For more information, please contact Training Coordinator Colwell at (510) 577-3248 or e-mail her at scolwell@sanleandro.org.
