This week marks the eighth year for the Youth Leadership Academy (YLA) program.

The YLA program fosters and encourages teens to be future leaders in and out of the community. They will develop and foster leadership skills, while meeting and having fun with like-minded peers.

The days begin at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. During those hours YLA members are busy learning the many aspects of police work and the mental strength needed to be an officer and leader.

They will visit various locations such as the:

  • Police Training Academy on the Baltimore County Community College campus in Dundalk
  • Park School (Falls and Old Court Roads)
  • Middle River Volunteer Fire Company, across from Martin State Airport

Each location brings a new element to the learning experience.

Twenty-seven teens are attending this year’s Youth Leadership Academy. A graduation ceremony will be held on Saturday, June 28 at the Public Safety Building.

At 1:02 p.m. June 24, Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to the Unit block of Warren Lodge Court 21030 (Warren Lodge Condominiums) for a report of a fire. When personnel arrived on the scene, fire and smoke could be seen coming from the building.

Engine 17 (Texas Station) called a second alarm at 1:07 p.m.

The fire was placed under control at 1:35 p.m.

Residents of the building evacuated. There were no reports of injuries to civilians, police personnel, or fire personnel.
