Po­lice Youth Academy

Catron Courier - - News -

The New Mex­ico State Po­lice Train­ing & Re­cruit­ing Bureau is ex­cited to an­nounce its 2018 Youth Academy, to be held at the NMSP Academy in Santa Fe, New Mex­ico, June 2430, 2018. The pur­pose of this pro­gram is to re­in­force pos­i­tive val­ues in­clud­ing lead­er­ship, cit­i­zen­ship, dis­ci­pline, and ac­count­abil­ity with New Mex­ico youth.

The Academy will also pro­vide stu­dents with in­sight re­gard­ing the polic­ing pro­fes­sion and seek to im­prove un­der­stand­ing and co­op­er­a­tion be­tween young peo­ple and law en­force­ment. Our goal is to make the Youth Academy a fun and ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence that stu­dents will re­mem­ber for years to come.

The academy will be open to New Mex­ico high school ju­niors and se­niors for aca­demic year 2018-19 and is free of charge. In­ter­ested ap­pli­cants must com­plete the ap­pli­ca­tion process, which in­cludes a ques­tion­naire and let­ter of rec­om­men­da­tion from a non-fam­ily mem­ber. The ap­pli­ca­tion can be found at: nmsp.com/images/ YouthA­cademy/ YouthA­cade­myAp­plica- tion.pdf

The dead­line for sub­mit­ting the ap­pli­ca­tion is May 10, 2018. Com­pleted ap­pli­ca­tions must be mailed to Youth Academy Co­or­di­na­tor Sergeant Ja­cob Gar­cia or emailed to nmsp.youtha­cademy@state.n m.us.

Any ques­tions should also be di­rected to Sergeant Gar­cia at 505-827-9236.

A com­pet­i­tive se­lec­tion process will en­sue once all ap­pli­ca­tions are re­ceived. Those se­lected to at­tend will be no­ti­fied per­son­ally of their ad­mis­sion and fur­ther steps to com­plete be­fore the academy be­gins.
