District Attorney Youth Academy
In partnership with the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, Sacramento Police Department, Rancho Cordova Police Department, and Sacramento County Probation Department, the District Attorney's Office invites high school students to apply for the Youth Academy program. Students actively learn about the criminal justice system, hear from our criminal justice partners, and engage in open communication between law enforcement and themselves concerning issues that affect youth today. Students are also educated on such topics as gangs, social media, and distracted driving.
Classes will be held twice a month in the evenings from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at THREE locations:
SOUTH AREA - from September 29, 2016 through April 6, 2017 at the Sacramento Police Department Headquarters - 5770 Freeport Blvd., Sacramento CA 95822. - CLOSED
