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

From July 19 through 26, nearly 200 girls ranging from kindergarten to recent high school graduates will be learning about fingerprinting, cutting apart cars and propelling from buildings at CampHERO.
Partnering with Girl Scouts of Wisconsin-Badgerland, CampHERO allows young girls to learn what it is like to work in protective services, which are career paths girls are not normally encouraged to pursue. It spans a week and immerses the campers in hands-on activities.
Nationally, only 31.2 percent of EMTs, 12.4 percent of police officers and 3.6 percent of firefighters are women, according to the camp’s website. CampHERO is working to fix this gender gap.
“The world’s population is 51 percent women, and we need to have statistics that reflect our population. People can do this job, they just don’t

Pinkston Middle School students paid close attention and took notes while stopping at multiple tables in the education building: The goal was to decode a “fake” crime scene involving their principal.
No one was hurt — the students were trying to find out if it was a crime or an accident.
Hosted at the Baxter County Fairgrounds on Wednesday, the annual crime scene investigation (CSI) program — an event based on the popular TV show CSI — taught students about heart rate, fingerprints, blood types

HOUSTON – The crime-scene investigation process came to life Friday at Atherton Elementary School when agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended to show the science behind their crime-solving methods.
Catching criminals doesn’t happen by pure luck and Perry Turner, special agent in charge of the Houston FBI Field Office, said it takes a keen mind and dedication to make a successful agent. That’s part of the reason for CSI Day in partnership with the Harris Foundation’s Dare To Dream program.
“It’s all about planting a seed early. Encouraging kids to pursue law enforcement as a profession and also painting a positive picture of law enforcement,” Turner said.
“I want to become an FBI agent,” student Eddie Arana said.
It’s rare for a 10-year-old to truly know what they want to do as an adult, but Arana insists he’s just that.
“Ever since I heard that you can go undercover and make sure that
