The 2022 Mukilteo Police Youth Academy at Kamiak High School (10801 Harbour Pointe Blvd., Mukilteo, WA) is scheduled for July 11 — 14, 2022. The selected applicants will listen to skill building presentations while being introduced to public safety operations. Classes include: crime scene investigations, safe scenario training, criminal law, safe relationships, safe driving tips, and so much more. Teens will have the opportunity to be exposed to a public safety career fields through practical application and interaction with public safety professionals who perform these duties everyday. Highlights of the public safety presentations include a K-9 demonstration with Police Dog “Hobbs”, a SWAT team presentation, FBI presentation and a crime scene investigations exercise.
Chief Cheol Kang said, “Too many times teens’ first contact with law enforcement is the result of criminality or police responding to a complaint involving teens. Unfortunately, this creates an early negative perception of law enforcement and can make it difficult to build positive relationships later. The Mukilteo Youth Police Academy is designed to provide an environment that will promote early positive interactions with our young residents that will benefit them as they ascend into adulthood.” The academy is aimed at high school-aged students, and applications will be reviewed and are subject to denial.
