What is YCPE?
Do you know a Santa Rosa teen (ages 14 to 18) who is interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the Santa Rosa Police Department? The Youth Community Police Experience (YCPE) participants enjoy 4 days of hands-on learning about what to expect from their police department and share that knowledge with others. They get an introduction to the local criminal justice system, and a first-hand opportunity to learn the types of duties and responsibilities of police officers and police staff such as Patrol procedures, criminal investigations, narcotics, firearms, defensive tactics, emergency vehicle operations, and neighborhood oriented policing.
