ABOUT THE POLICE SCHOOL PROGRAM
The 4-day crime prevention police school program aims to empower students with essential knowledge and skills to navigate various challenges in today’s society. By focusing on topics such as healthy relationships, gangs, drugs, and cyber safety, the program equips kids with the tools they need to make informed decisions and stay safe.
Throughout the program, the students have the unique opportunity to interact with police officers who play a crucial role in maintaining community safety in Calgary. YouthLink uses intel from the frontlines to educate youth about matters of the day that we know they will be confronted with. These officers serve as mentors and guides, sharing their expertise and firsthand experiences with the participants. Our goal is to help break down barriers and build trust with Calgary Police, while helping the children develop a deeper understanding of the important role that police officers play in ensuring a safe environment for everyone.
In addition to addressing vital topics, the program introduces students to different police units and showcases their contributions to the community. This hands-on experience allows the participants to gain insights into various aspects of law enforcement, which we hope educates the youth about the efforts by these units to keep Calgary communities safe.
