In the effort to reach youth interested in a career in law enforcement, the Port Huron Police Department is working on its first ever youth Police Academy slated to run in June 2019. The academy will be a one week program and focus on 11th-12th grade students interested in learning about the career. The program will introduce students to topics such as traffic stops, drunk driving, building searches, domestic violence, constitutional law, physical fitness, and other areas pertinent to law enforcement. To make the academy a  success, the Port Huron Police Department is partnering with the AT&T Foundation who awarded the department a $10,000 grant earmarked to assist the Youth Academy.
