Police Teen Academy Wants You!
Attention high school students: Are you looking for something
really cool to do this summer? How about driving a patrol car? What
about processing a crime scene? You can do that and more by attending
the Arvada Police Teen Academy set for July 16-20, 2012.
Members of the Arvada Police Department
will teach students about many aspects of policing including building
searches, arrest tactics, and criminal law. The cost of the five-day
program is $20.
Priority enrollment will be given to
students from Arvada Senior, Arvada West, Pomona and Ralston Valley
high schools as well as those who are enrolled at Faith Christian Academy
and Arvada city residents.
Wheat Ridge High School students are also welcome to apply.
A waiting list will be established for students
outside the city limits. Class size is limited to 20 students.
