We have concluded our tours for Summer 2019. Hopefully, we will be providing this program again next summer. Please check back for more information and potential dates closer to Summer 2020. Everyone who attended had a great time and learned a lot. If you were unable to attend, we do offer tours of the department to individuals and groups. More information on tours of the department can be found here.
This program is for students between the ages of 13 and 17 years old who are interested in a career in law enforcement. We will answer the question, "How do I become an officer?" You can tour our four facilities, speak to command staff, and participate in question and answer sessions. We are looking for students with exceptional character and a desire to learn! This is completely free. Please choose one of the following date and submit an application. All tours will begin at the headquarters building located at 267 W. Front Street and will run from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
High School Students and Job Shadowing:
The Burlington Police Department has several times worked with local high schools to allow interested students shadow officers to learn more about working in law enforcement. Most recently, students joined officers at the BPD's training facilities. Students were able to do a driving course, the firearm simulator, and examine a simulated crime scene. Read more about it and watch videos here.
