Registration for the 2022 Middlesex Sheriff’s Office Youth Public Safety Academy (YPSA) has opened and a limited number of spots remain available for youngsters between the ages of 8-12.

Following two years of virtual sessions, YPSA will return in-person on July 11 and run through the first week of August. Due to continuing COVID-related considerations, restrictions and requirements, this year’s YPSA will contain some changes, including a reduction in the total number of cadets that will be able to attend. The camp has also been shortened from six weeks to four.

“We’re excited to welcome cadets, their families and our public safety partners back for another tremendous summer of YPSA,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “The ability to bring this back has required significant preparation and planning – all with an eye towards ensuring we could offer this program with the same exceptional level of educational and fun programming it has come to be known for throughout its history.”

YPSA is open to any Middlesex County resident between the ages of 8-12 with bus stops for pickup and drop off situated in 14 areas throughout the county. A limited number of openings remain for cadets at the eight locations listed below:

  • July 11-15: Tewksbury, Arlington/Cambridge, Burlington/Bedford
  • July 18-22: Framingham/Natick, Watertown/Belmont
  • July 25-29: Lowell
  • August 1-5: Waltham/Newton
