The Prince George County Police Department, in conjunction with Fire & EMS, held its first YPSA (Youth Public Safety Academy) from June19th 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, 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. The 2017 YPSA had 23 participants from the Junior High School and High School.
