The 17th session of the Summer Youth Police Academy began July 8 and concluded with graduation July 18. The academy is targeted for students entering sixth through eight grade in the fall of 2013. The goal of the Summer Youth Police Academy is to promote youth interest in law enforcement as a career.

Students met for four two-hour-long sessions.    

Training this year included a tour of the police department facility and a presentation about requirements to enter the law enforcement field. Students also learned about crime scene identification, which included fingerprinting and evidence handling.  Students were taught how police officers make safe traffic stops and writing warnings and citations based on a traffic violation.

On the final day, students learned arrest and control procedures, handcuffing and officer safety procedures.
