Youth Services Unit

Youth Services Unit
In existence since 1996, this valuable program involves police positively interacting with youth at an early age. Two YSU Officers service more than 3,000 K-12 students in the Mt. Pleasant Public Schools (MPPS), providing guidance and support for students, ultimately forming lifelong bonds.  The YSU Officers are primarily housed in the high school and middle school, visiting elementary schools when able.

YSU Officers lead lockdown drills, provide presentations and present lectures to classes and groups, organize alcohol and tobacco sting operations, respond to calls for assistance, investigate complaints, attend sporting events, ensure orderly school drop off and pick up, refer students in crisis to mental health advocates, and help kids and parents find the programs and assistance needed to resolve family issues, among other duties.

The popular Youth Police Academy as well as Shop with a Cop, are just a few of the programs YSU hosts.
