Once again this year, several officers from MPD, other law enforcement agencies, community-based organizations and volunteers will be joining together to host a number of "youth academies" over the next three weeks.   All of these youth academies seek to:

• Build a relationship of trust with community youth, their families, and neighborhoods.
