Jefferson County, Co. – The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting applications for the 2011 Youth Academy. This free academy is for young people between the ages of 14 and 20, and offers them a peek inside their local law enforcement agency.
This is a fun-filled, week long academy with class topics and interactive activities including, SWAT, DUI simulations, K-9, patrol procedures, crime scene investigations, arrest control, and jail operations. Students will also participate in hands-on “shooting” at the indoor laser firing range.
Through the youth academy, the Sheriff’s Office hopes to create a positive connection between young people and law enforcement, while providing insight into the challenging tasks deputy sheriffs and investigators face daily.
This is a great way to kick off the summer break with gaining a better understanding of law enforcement while having a lot of fun!
