Memphis Police Youth Police Experience
About the Program
Coming early 2021, the Memphis Police Department will present the Youth Police Experience to introduce children and teens to the world of Law Enforcement. This program will introduce students to what occurs at the Memphis Police Department daily. This program will also provide the students with the ability to build relationships with police officers and the civilians that work within the Memphis Police Department. On the final day, students will work with a police officer to investigate a mock crime scene set up, especially for them.
All participants will receive a T-Shirt and a certificate upon completion of the program. This program is FREE.
The Youth Police Experience schedule is coming soon. Transportation on all days is the responsibility of the participant and their parent/guardian.
