2019 Junior Police Academy

The 2019 Junior Police Academy is now accepting applications from Wiregrass youth ages 12-17 who are interested in learning more about the police department. The JPA is a two-week summer program designed to motivate young people to be outstanding citizens through law enforcement education. An extension of community policing, the JPA transforms the traditional role of a police officer into one of mentor and friend. At the same time it encourages young people to be our partners, not adversaries, in building safer schools and communities.

Also, a Junior Police Advanced Class is being offered for participants aged 15-17 who have already completed a prior Junior Police Academy class.

This free program is being offered by the Dothan Police Department’s Community Service Division on the following dates:

  • Basic Session 1: June 3-13, 2019
  • Basic Session 2: June 17-27, 2019
  • Basic Session 3: July 8-18, 2019
  • Advanced Session: July 23-25, 2019

For more information please feel free to send us a note online or call the Community Service Division at (334) 793-0230. Applications can be picked up from any Dothan Police School Resource Officer or by visiting the front desk at the police department.
