The Baltimore County Police Department, this week, is hosting its 11th annual Youth Leadership Academy (YLA).

The YLA offers the 28 teens, 14 to 18, the opportunity to develop leadership skills while having fun and meeting with peers who are like-minded.

Each day the teenagers meet at the Police Training Academy at 8 a.m. and begin a week of new insight into the police department and the people who serve.

The teens learn leadership and teamwork when they spend the day at the Parke School.

At the police academy, they role play crime scenes. Teens are pushed to think, investigate and interview crime victims and suspects. They soon discover this isn’t CSI.

The week is exciting and educational. Young people who are thinking about working in the criminal justice field will find this time well spent.
