The Folsom Police Department's Youth Program consists of the following elements:
- School/Law Enforcement Partnership: Public schools within the community have an open door policy that allows Folsom Police Officers to visit the campuses at will.
- Elementary school program: Bicycle safety rodeos and classroom presentations focusing on drug, gang & violence prevention.
- Teacher education program: Helps teachers recognize signs of drug and gang affiliation in their students. The information is delivered by the juvenile officer and the vice principal from the high school.
- Folsom Police Explorer Program: The Folsom Police Department is looking for motivated young men and women, between the ages of 14-20, who are interested in a career in law enforcement. The Explorer Program provides an opportunity for individuals to be exposed to uniformed patrol, dispatch, community services officer, records, detectives, and crime scene investigation. This is a great way to volunteer and give back to your community, while receiving academy style training related to the law enforcement field.
