The Community & Youth Outreach Division of the Newport News Police Department is designed to create a positive, ongoing, and creative working relationship with the members of our community.
The division offers various programs, which are designed to educate the community about the history of the Department and how the Department currently operates.
The division oversees the Newport Police Museum and offers community education programs, which include our Citizen’s Police Academy, Citizen’s Police Academy for Seniors and Youth Leadership Camp. We also help organize Neighborhood Watch Programs so that we can better partner with community members in both preventing and solving crime. This division also coordinates the Department's volunteer program, an essential component to NNPD's day-to-day operations.
