JPD to Host PaYS Signing Ceremony

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The signing ceremony will be the beginning of a new partnership between JPD, Capital City Fire-Rescue and the U.S. Army.

    The Juneau Police Department will host a signing ceremony at the police department for the Partnership for Youth Success program on Dec. 12 at 1 p.m. The signing ceremony will be the beginning of a new partnership between JPD, Capital City Fire-Rescue and the U.S. Army, which focuses on the recruitment of soldiers getting ready to leave the military.

    The PaYS Program is a strategic partnership between the U.S. Army and a cross section of corporations, companies and public sector agencies. The program provides America’s youth with an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future. PaYS partners guarantee soldiers an interview and possible employment after the Army.

    The PaYS program began in 2000 as an enlistment incentive for Regular Army enlisted soldiers. In October 2002, the program expanded to include Army Reserve soldiers. The program later expanded to include Reserve Officers’ Training Corps Reserve Component Cadets and ROTC Cadets who incur an active duty commitment.

    The ceremony will be open to the public
