Deputy Auxiliary Police (DAP)
 
 
The Deputy Auxiliary Police (DAP) Program is similar to the Cadet program, but it is geared toward even younger children.  It is designed for children aged 9 through 13 years, yet some divisions offer admittance as early as 8 years old. At the age of 13 they are then encouraged to join the Cadet Program. The DAP program allows children to participate in activities that instill a sense of community pride, self-discipline and leadership ability in an overall positive environment.  This program is supervised by Police Officers.  During the meetings, DAP members will learn many valuable lessons such as: traffic safety, home alone safety, importance of physical training, child safety, promotion of self-esteem, proper nutrition, and criminal awareness.  DAP reinforces anti-drug and gang violence messages.  Instructors emphasize community service and the importance of citizenship. Here young people are taught to respect their parents, teachers and other authority figures.
