Police departments across the country have offered “academies” for local residents, citizens seniors, non-English speakers, but now the Alhambra police department is going one step further – reaching out to children.

The Alhambra Police recently announced a unique program for Alhambra’s youth between the ages of 11 and 13 years of age.
The Citizens Academy for Youth is a 12-hour course being offered this summer “will help provide them with strategic life skills,” according to the city website.
“This unique project, designed to educate, support and help youth reach their full potential as members of our community, will be provided through interactive instruction, prevention/intervention, and positive role-modeling alternatives,” the city website states.
The four sessions will be held July 7,8,9, and 10 at t he Alhambra Police Department building next to city hall. Advanced registration is required, and registration forms are available at the Alhambra Police Department, or can be requested by e-mail by writing to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Each three-hour youth academy session focuses on strategic problem-solving, good decision-making, community engagement and partnerships, education, outreach, and future planning.
“The goal is for participating youth to develop a strong rapport with the Alhambra Police Department and to continue to be outstanding role models for their peers in the areas of citizenship, character, and sound problem-solving skills necessary for a successful future,” the city website stated.
