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.
