The Pasadena Junior Public Safety Academy, JPSA, is a joint venture between the Pasadena Police and Fire Departments. In this program, 40 selected Pasadena young teens will participate in a five-day academy that will provide a form for them to interact with police and fire professionals while learning firsthand what these potential careers entail.
The participants will visit the Pasadena Police Department and learn about the various units such as K-9, SWAT, Forensics, Traffic, Dispatch, Jail and the Heliport. They will also visit a Pasadena Fire Department Fire Station to learn about fire safety techniques and basic firefighting training. The JPSA includes a visit to the Orange County Sheriff’s Academy and Training Center as well as the Los Angeles City Fire Boats 1 and 2.
The Junior Public Safety Academy is scheduled from Monday July 30, 2012 and concludes with a graduation luncheon on Saturday August 4, 2012.
