Our 2019 Teen Academy dates have been selected. We will have one academy session this year:

  • July 10-14, 2019

Applications will be available soon!




It is the mission of the Carmel Police Department Teen Academy to provide teens with a challenging learning environment that will develop and enhance good decision-making, leadership skills and relationships with their community police officers.. 


 Training Sessions Picture5

Days include classes in K-9, traffic stops, jail tour, Internet use, drug abuse awareness, SWAT, Defensive Tactics, some simulated firearms operations, OWI awareness, close order drill and physical fitness training.


Teens must be aged 13 through 18 to apply and free of any significant disciplinary problems. 

Applications Will Be Available Soon! 


Since there is daily physical exercise, teens are required to wear comfortable athletic shoes and blue or dark colored athletic shorts. A Teen Academy t-shirt will be distributed the first day of the program and teens must wear it each day, with a pair of navy blue athletic shorts.

Teens are required to keep their hair off their collar. Teens should bring a sack lunch Monday-Thursday. Graduation meal is catered on Friday night!


Carmel Police Department has partnered with Carmel-Clay schools to bring this program to the Carmel Middle School campus. Classes begin promptly at 8:00 AM and end at 3:00 PM (Mon-Thurs) and 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Friday)Picture3

Completion of the program culminates in a graduation ceremony that Friday night for the whole family, with a delicious meal provided by Abuelo’s Mexican Embassy, another program partner! 

The Carmel Teen Academy would like to thank our generous sponsors:
