DeKalb County Police Department to Host 2022 Youth Academy
Participation is free!

DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – Applications are now being accepted for the DeKalb County Police Department’s second Youth Academy.

This is an opportunity for DeKalb County youth ages 14-17 to learn how their police department works. During the one-day, in-person program, which will be held on Saturday, July 30, students will be given an overview of the department’s various units, including K9, SWAT and Crime Scene. They will also learn what to do when they encounter police.

“I think it is important for our youth to have dialogue with their local police,” said DeKalb Police Chief Mirtha V. Ramos. “We want them to learn about us as we learn about them and hear their concerns.”

There is no cost to participate and parents or guardians can request an application by emailing or calling Ms. Shanethia Robinson at smrobinson@dekalbcountyga.gov or 770-482-0336.
