High school students must register for the Arvada Teen Police Academy by June 30, 2010.
There’s still room in the class for teens to get hands-on policing experience like driving a patrol car, conducting a building search and even processing a mock crime scene.
The Arvada Teen Police Academy is set for July 19-23. It’s open to high school students between the ages 16 and 18.
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 program is $20 and students will get a t-shirt and a class notebook.
Priority enrollment will be given to students from Arvada, Arvada West, Pomona and Ralston Valley high schools as well as those who are enrolled at Faith Christian Academy. A waiting list will be established for students outside the city limits.
To apply for the Teen Police Academy, students must have a valid driver’s license and a GPA of at least 2.0.
