2024 Junior Mountie Police Academy

The annual Junior Mountie Police Academy is back!

Coquitlam RCMP is hosting our Junior Mountie Police Academy, a fun week-long summer camp, from July 15 - July 19 of this year. The last day of the program culminates in a Show n’ Shine event that is open to the public, involving public safety exhibitions such as police cars, a fire truck, an ambulance, and other family-friendly demonstrations.

We invite youth ages 10-14 who are interested in policing to apply. The camp is offered at no charge to residents of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore, Belcarra, and kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) First Nations. Interested participants must complete an application form (linked below) and submit any required corresponding materials by April 19.

Applicants will be notified of whether they are accepted into the academy by early May. Historically, the number of applications received exceeds the number of spaces available. Camp attendees are selected by a lottery system.
