In support of our Mission to further promote positive “teamwork” relationships between our Community and the Police, the Huntington Park Teen Police Academy was created to provide the youth in our community the opportunity to acquire firsthand knowledge on the operations of the Police Department.
The Teen Police Academy is another program sponsored by the Huntington Park Police Activities League, which further supports the main objective: to encourage young people to become productive young adults by promoting the development of important core values thereby deterring juvenile delinquency.
