Community Education: Teen Academy

The Palm Beach Police & Fire Foundation underwrites the cost to host Teen Police & Fire Academy. This week-long program, free of charge runs daily for one week in June. Participants attend five daily sessions that include a “ride-along” in the official police boat and a tour of the Palm Beach County Jail in Palm Beach. The teens also learn about Use of Force, Firearms Safety, Crime Scene Investigation, Drug Awareness, Water Rescue, First Aid/CPR, and Social Media concerns.

Graduates of the Teen Academy become a part of the Palm Beach & Fire Foundation family and will be invited to take part in activities with other Teen Academy recruits throughout the year.
