Youth Police Academy

Castle Rock Police is proud to present our Youth Police Academy. Students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge in areas outside of school curriculum with an emphasis on real life scenarios that our officers face on a daily basis. This unique summer program will give students the chance to interact and build positive relationships with CRPD.
