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.

Ever wonder what police work is all about? The Baltimore County Police Department asks teens, 14 through 18, to apply now for this year’s Youth Leadership Academy (YLA). The deadline for all applicants is May 16.

The academy offers teens the opportunity to develop leadership skills, while meeting and having fun with other local like-minded peers.

This is the eighth year of the YLA. It will run from Monday, June 23, through Saturday, June 28. Students will spend from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day learning various aspects of the Police Department. Each day, teens will visit various venues to accommodate the training for the day.

Students will visit the:

  • Police Training Academy on the CCBC Dundalk campus,
  • Park School (Falls and Old Court roads), and
  • Middle River Volunteer Fire Company across from Martin State Airport.

At the end of the program, teens will participate in a graduation ceremony at the Public Safety Building/Police Headquarters.

Applicants must reside in the County, must be age 14-18, and have good grades. Besides the application form, applicants must write an essay about themselves and why they should be in the program. A parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver and consent form in order for the teen to participate in the YLA. A background check will also be done before a student can participate.

The application, waiver and consent forms are available online.

If unable to apply through the website, contact the Youth Initiatives Team at 410-887-2587 for the necessary forms.

If you know of any young person you feel will benefit from this positive experience, contact the Youth Initiatives Team at 410-887-2587 or send an email to Detective Teresa Moudry.

The Baltimore County Police Department is now accepting applications for its Community Crime Prevention and Youth Activity Grants Program for fiscal year 2015 (July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015).

  • Community Crime Prevention grants are available for county Citizens On Patrol groups and other programs aimed at reducing crime.
  • Youth Activity grants are available for programs that provide ongoing, sustained efforts that focus on early intervention and long-term behavior modification of at-risk youth.

Only non-profit groups, community organizations and individuals that operate or reside in Baltimore County are eligible to receive funding.
