BGPD Junior Police Academy


Many people in the City of Bowling Green are familiar with the Citizens Police Academy (CPA) hosted by the Bowling Green Police Department each year. The CPA is a 10 week course for adults 18 years of age and over which provides an opportunity to learn first-hand about police operations through a series of classes and hands on demonstrations.


In addition to the CPA, the BGPD holds a two day Junior Police Academy camp every year for student’s age 10 to 13 years old. The class takes place at Safety City in front of Greenwood High School on Scottsville Road and at the Bowling Green Police Department at 911 Kentucky Street.


This year’s Junior Police Academy will be held June 20th 21st and 22nd.


This action packed program covers several aspects of police work including presentations on patrol operations, the BGPD K9 unit, the Critical Response Team, traffic safety, Crime Scene Processing and much more. Students will have a hands-on experience with staff by getting their finger prints taken, testing their traffic safety skills, trying on equipment and getting up close and personal with a patrol car. Campers will also experience a jail tour, BGPD tour, and a mock trial at the Warren County Justice Center. Lunches, t-shirts, caps, transportation and back packs are provided.


The cost of the Junior Police Academy is $50. The June 2016 class will enroll at the Bowling Green Ball Park on April 26th from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. and we look forward to welcoming new students each and every year.  If you or your child has an interest in the Bowling Green Police Department and learning more about the organization, please call 270-393-BGPD.
