March 5, 2009 · 3:52 PM
Applications are currently being accepted for the Washington State Patrol-Kiwanis Youth Law Enforcement Career Camp, which is now in its 31st year.
The purpose of the camp is to provide high school students who have an interest in law enforcement an opportunity to find out more about the types of jobs that are available. Some of the most popular classes are demonstrations from the SWAT team, K-9 handlers, the driving course, and defensive tactics.
The classes also include guest speakers from federal, state, county and local law enforcement agencies, providing firsthand information to the students. Many students who attend the academy go on to have careers in the criminal justice field.
The camp will be held at the WSP Academy in Shelton from July 25 to July 31, 2009. Applications can be downloaded from the WSP website, http://www.wsp.wa.gov/, under “Outreach.”
