Sparta Police Department 4th Annual Junior Police Academy Already Full, Much More To Come

On August 23rd, the Sparta Police Department will host its 4th annual Junior Police Academy.  The interactive program, directed towards Sparta youth in grades 5th through 8th, has already hit their maximum number of participants.

 

Sparta Lieutenant John Lamon attributes the growth to the changes made in the program last year, designing it to be more interactive and fun.  Last year’s Academy reached its maximum enrollment just a week before the camp started. This year, they reached it well over a month before.

 

Kids who attended last year participated in crime scene investigation, finger printing, an escape room, canine investigation, and more over the course of the three days.

Annual Youth Police Academy at Vestal High School

VESTAL, N.Y. –

Students from Vestal Middle School and High School are participating in a mock police academy. It’s a two week long event that focuses on a wide array of law enforcement. For the past six years the Vestal Police Department has partnered with the Vestal School District to bring interactive scenarios into the training program. Since then, the program has done nothing but grow.

“It’s also about building relationships with kids in the community. We love having them give up two weeks of their summer to come and hangout with police officers. And it’s a win win for us and them,” said School Resource Officer, Conor Talbut.

Cadets in grades seven through twelve start out every day physical training, followed by an afternoon of workshops and demonstrations. In addition to instruction by officers, students see a wide

Montana Five-O: Montana Junior Police Leadership Academy teaches teens skills for law enforcement and for life

As Helena teen Wyatt Burrell navigated through cones at the law enforcement driving track, he remembered the tip he was taught — what got you in will get you out.

This, the more tedious course, was to hone in on backing into spaces and deft maneuvering of the vehicle. It’s also to teach users to trust their cars.

Spinning around in the skid car was more fun. It also taught Burrell and the 31 other cadets at the Montana Junior Police Leadership Academy how to deal with hazards like slipping on ice in a safe environment. Tuesday’s time at the track was just part of the week of activities for the academy, which is open to teens from across the state each year.

“I’ve never done anything like this before,” 16-year-old Burrell said. “It’s awesome. We do a lot of fun stuff.”

Other tasks during the academy included crime scene investigation, rapelling off a
