Middlesex Sheriff Office Announces Applications for the Youth Public Safety Academy


Remember, safety comes first.

Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian has announced applications are now available for children wishing to participate in the 2018 Youth Public Safety Academy (YPSA).

YPSA is a safe and educational, low-cost summer camp option for Middlesex County families.  The program is open to children ages 8-12 and is held at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Training Academy in Chelmsford.

YPSA is comprised of six, one-week camps beginning on July 9.  

Transportation to and from designated bus stops, as well as lunch, are provided daily, with a graduation ceremony held that Friday in Chelmsford.   

Participants are not required to reside in one of the communities with a designated bus stop, but pickups and drop offs will only be at those locations.

Finally, Koutoujian said he is pleased to have the academy teach young children about public safety in the surrounding communities.

“Year after year, YPSA is one of our most successful community programs,”y he said. “YPSA is an exciting opportunity for youngsters to learn valuable public safety lessons in a fun-filled environment supported not only by our own staff, but our local law enforcement and fire department partners.”
