Youth Police Academy Students Gain Valuable Skills

Twenty-five students from the Blue Water Area graduated from the Port Huron Police Department’s 2nd annual Youth Academy on Friday, June 12th. This week, students from many different high schools were introduced to topics such as traffic stops, drunk driving, building searches, domestic violence, constitutional law, physical fitness, and other areas pertinent to law enforcement. 

The Port Huron Police Department, with the help of the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and the Michigan State Police, provides high school aged students education, mentoring and career readiness. The Port Huron Police Department offers many opportunities for young men and women to learn about policing through our Explorer and Cadet programs as well.
