Twice a year, he can also be found in Kenya, east Africa, training personnel in forensic techniques in support of anti-poaching efforts. He volunteers his time, and arranges for delivery of donated equipment. (The anti-poaching patrols especially need compact digital cameras to record evidence at crime scenes.)

Hunting wildlife in Kenya is illegal. The only legal shooting of such animals as rhinos or lions is with a camera.

Trooper Youth Week gives students a taste of law enforcement training

SEA GIRT — Trooper Youth Week, five days of grueling training for high school juniors, isn’t for the faint of heart.

Ask any of the 138 young men and women who opted to forego cell phones and other electronics to instead choose to experience life as a recruit for the New Jersey State Police.

For those who graduated the 104th class of Trooper Youth Week on Friday, the long hours, taxing drills and classroom lectures was worth giving up a sliver of their summer – and their favorite pastimes.

“It’s a life-changing thing and I’m glad I’ve chosen to do it,” said Dyon Womack, 17, of Howell.
