Junior CSI investigators go ‘beyond what you see on TV’

Under the watchful eye of retired Baltimore City Police Homicide Detective Earl Kratsch, a group of middle-schoolers equipped with plastic gloves, clipboards and cameras descended upon a stolen pickup truck, searching for evidence.

“Two males robbed Royal Farms and stole cigarettes and money. As they were leaving, one tripped as if shot,” said Emma Zepp, 12, as she described the situation.

Emma and her peers weren’t searching for real blood and firearms on Tuesday afternoon — luckily — the situation was a hypothetical challenge set up as part of the final exam for the Junior CSI Academy, a program that teaches middle-schoolers about crime scene investigation with instruction from real law enforcement professionals.

Emma said she enrolled in the program because she was interested in how police solve crimes and investigate crime scenes. She was surprised to learn how much information investigators can glean from footprints.

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.

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
