Sheriff Koutoujian announces applications for 2018 Youth Public Safety Academy

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

In its 19th year, YPSA is a safe and educational, low-cost summer camp option for Middlesex County families.  The camp is open to children ages 8-12 and is held at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Training Academy in Chelmsford.

“Year after year, YPSA is one of our most successful community programs,” said Sheriff Koutoujian.  “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.”

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 each Friday in Chelmsford.   Participants are not required to reside in one of the communities with a designated bus stop, but will be picked up and dropped off at those locations.
