The LAPD is dedicated to mentoring teenagers and young adults to become future leaders and public safety professional through the LAPD Explorer Program and The Los Angeles Police Academy Magnet School Program.  Both programs prepare highly motivated young men and women for careers in law enforcement and related fields.  This leadership conference will entail networking, leadership topics and problem solving with a presentation at the end.

The Magnet School program is monitored by an assigned LAPD police officer and a faculty member at each of the six participating Police Academy Schools.  The education goal of the program is to have 100 percent participation of students, who graduate from high school, matriculate to community colleges or universities with the long-term goal of developing tomorrow’s police officers.
