Prince George Youth Public Safety Academy

Prince George Youth Public Safety Academy


The Prince George County Police Department, in conjunction with Fire & EMS, held its first  YPSA (Youth Public Safety Academy) from June 19th to June 30th in 2017.  Prince George YPSA is a two-week-long camp designed to expose our young citizens to role models in public safety – namely their local police, fire, and emergency medical services (EMS) personnel, as well as to teach them valuable life and safety lessons.  The academy is limited to twenty-five students in each class, with a minimum of 10 students for the class to run.
