One of the “tools” being utilized by the City of Norfolk and the Norfolk Police as a part of Project Focus are Youth Academys.
The Norfolk Police Department re-tooled its highly popular Citizen Police Academy for the youth audience to help young citizens know more about law enforcement and how it applies to them.
The first Youth Academy began this week in Olde Huntersville in the Huntersville Recreation Center with an enrollment of approximately 20. A Youth Academy is planned for Denby Park and is set to begin on November 19 at the Crossroads Recreation Center. The Academy will run for four weeks and participants are required to be accompanied by an adult. Please encourage your children and your neighbors to be a park of the Denby Park Academy.
