Police Leaders of Tomorrow was created in recognition of the need for diversity in policing. Although the Fairfax County Police Department is more diverse today than in previous years, the Department continues to seek opportunities to ensure its membership is reflective of the community it serves. There are two goals of the Police Leaders of Tomorrow program. The first is to encourage those who attend to consider a career in law enforcement. The second is to educate young adults about policing.
The program is offered free of charge and is open to young adults with diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds between the ages of 18 and 24 in the Metro Washington Area. Class size is limited to 15 students.
Classes will be held Monday through Friday June 11 – 15, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at various police facilities across Fairfax County, including the Criminal Justice Academy in Chantilly, Public Safety Headquarters in Fairfax, and the Pine Ridge Facility in Annandale. Classes are a combination of presentations and facility tours. Participants are expected to attend all classes as well as participate in a ride along with a sworn police officer.
