About Virtual Camp Fearless

Greetings from the Albuquerque Police Department! Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, APD canceled the police youth camps for the summer of 2020. Despite “social-distancing,” this will not stop APD from reaching out to Albuquerque’s youth. APD is excited to launch our 1st Virtual Youth Camp!

WHO is this for? The Virtual Camp is primarily designed for age groups between 7-13 years of age. All ages outside the listed age group are still welcomed and encouraged to view. Only age groups between the ages of 7-13 are eligible for the Certificate of Achievement and other awards.

WHAT is this about? The Albuquerque Police Department has created a collaboration of YouTube videos utilized to educate youth on topics such as: public safety, APD’s specialized units, and health & wellness.

WHEN does this begin? APD’s Virtual Youth Camp commences July 8th, 2020, and participants are expected to have completed all required viewings by July 31st, 2020.

WHY should I do this? The men and women of the Albuquerque Police Department are dedicated to keeping the community safe and there is no one better to do this with than our youth! Our goal is to strengthen trust between the community & youth with the Albuquerque Police Department in order to build a more peaceful community. These videos are positive messages for your children to enjoy and help them lead a safe and healthy lifestyle.
