Boot Camp

PRIDE Platoon Boot Camp Program

The Baldwin Park Police Department has implemented a Boot Camp Program that is specifically designed to deal with at-risk youth in our community. The PRIDE Platoon (Pride, Respect, Integrity, Discipline, Enthusiasm) concentrates on junior high and high school aged juveniles 14-17 years of age who are referred to the program through the courts, probation, schools, parents or other references. The PRIDE Program is a collaborative effort between law enforcement and community-based organizations. The program is developed and coordinated by experienced Baldwin Park Police Officers with a cadre of volunteers who donate their time and expertise.

The 8-10 week program offers components to alter negative behavior. Each participant will go through counseling, perform community service, receive career guidance assistance, participate in rigorous physical training and experience the realities of prison life. Additional documents required for the application process are; copy of utility bill (for proof of residence), parent/guardian income verification (source of income documents).
