Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy

The FBI New Haven and Yale University Police Department partnered in 2015 to launch Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy (FLEYA). The program has been nationally recognized and implemented in select communities throughout the United States. Yale Police and FBI New Haven partner annually to conduct a week-long law enforcement and legal training overnight camp for select youth throughout Connecticut every summer.

Yale’s campus serves as the home base for an academic environment and overnight accommodations with the premier atmosphere to encourage students to pursue higher education and careers in law enforcement. 

This unique training includes classes with Federal Agents, Assistant US Attorney’s and State’s Attorney’s, local police, and judges.
