The mission of the Seminole police Department Youth Services Unit is to forge and maintain an alliance between youth, families, the community, and the Police Department, utilizing teamwork and accountability that provide the necessary tools to assist our youth in becoming mature and responsible citizens.

The Seminole Police Department participates in numerous opportunities to continually build their connection with young people with programs and services. The Youth Services Unit works in partnership with the youth, boys and girls club, schools, and recreation departments to identify areas that will make for a better future. Together, they have an open and honest discussion about pre-conceived notions of each other and an opportunity to explain laws and discuss ways to build relationships based on mutual trust and understanding.
