The police departments of Aldan, Clifton Heights, East Lansdowne, Lansdowne and Yeadon boroughs are holding a Youth Police Academy for ages 13 to 17. This eight-week police academy-style program meets on Thursday nights from March 1 through April 26, from 6 to 9 pm at the American Legion Post 1000, 106 Bonsall Avenue, Aldan, PA 19018. Participants learn about the U.S. Constitution and our legal system, as well as police practices and procedures.
The program is led by officers from all five departments, giving the police and young people a chance to get to know each other. There is a lot of practical, hands-on participation, and both officers and the participants will have a good time and learn a few things. For more information, please contact Bobbi Harris at the Lansdowne Police Department (610-623-0700), or download the 2018 Application Packet. This is a great program for young people who want to learn more about police work or are interested in a career in public safety.
