Pittsburgh Police Youth Programs Unit
The Cops & Kids Summer Camp represents a unique experience for Pittsburgh area youth to understand and explore all aspects of policing and public safety.
For one week, campers will experience positive interactions with police officers. The curriculum is designed to enhance your child’s knowledge of public safety, as well as, reinforcing positive decision-making.
The objective is to encourage campers to start early being responsible for their actions.
The goal of Cops & Kids is to help build self esteem, self awareness, and a better understanding what it takes to become a good citizen.
The Camp Sessions will be held:
- July 10-14 – Duquesne University
- July 17-21 – CCAC, Allegheny Campus
- August 7-11 – Chatham University

Twice a year, the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police sponsors an opportunity for members of the community to become closely acquainted with the roles and responsibilities of the Police Bureau. The Pittsburgh Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA) brings the police and the community close together in a setting that offers a sample of police training to each participant.
- Participants receive three hours of training one evening a week for 15 weeks.
- Participants are taught the basics of criminal law, search and seizure, patrol tactics, firearms and many other subjects.
- Participants learn about the processing of crimes, how police canines are used and are exposed to many of the specialty police units.
The program allows participants to experience some of the highlights of the police training and are exposed to the operations of the police bureau.
All this takes place in a safe and entertaining training environment.
Class size is limited to 30 participants. All interested persons must complete an application and give permission for the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police to conduct a background check to determine if they have a criminal record.
