From June 13, 2016 to June 17, 2016, the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, Union Township Police Department, Pierce Township Police Department, Amelia Police Department, Batavia Police Department and other partners are teaming up to present a week long Junior Police Academy (JPA) for ages 13 to 17. This program will provide a unique experience for law enforcement professionals to come together with young people and share basic law enforcement knowledge, techniques and experiences.
Held at the Union Township Civic Center located at 4350 Aicholtz Road, the JPA cadets will not only learn about law enforcement, but much emphasis is placed on teamwork, respect, positive behavior, pride in one’s work and the resistance to drugs and alcohol abuse. It is our hope that each cadet will leave the program with a better understanding of citizenship and how rewarding community involvement can be.
In broad terms, the Junior Police Academy began in Austin, Texas and has since grown to over 200 programs nationwide. This year, thanks to the coordinated efforts of the Union Township Police Department, Pierce Township Police Department, Amelia Police Department and Batavia Police Department, we are able to present this program at no cost.
We encourage you to learn more about the Junior Police Academy by visiting the national web page at www.juniorpoliceacademy.org or feel free to contact Deputy Ryan Patton at 513-947-7424. We are looking forward to a fun and educational week and hope to see you there.
