The 2020 Law Enforcement Summer Camp

When: June 8th through 12th, 2020
Time: 8:30 am to 3 pm. Monday through Friday

Goals

The Junction City Police Department’s Law Enforcement Summer Camp is a camp designed for middle school children. It is an outreach program developed to help students become more aware of First Responders’ functions. The purpose is to build life skills, instill confidence and develop self-esteem. 

The curriculum will include a wide variety of activities that will incorporate teamwork, physical fitness, and general First Responders’ information. We will emphasize the importance of good decision making skills and teach good citizenship.

Classes

Our School Resource Officers will conduct the camp, which allows them to maintain a good working relationship over the summer with their students. Our students will observe presentations made by a:

  • K9 Officer
  • SWAT Team Members
  • Patrol Officers
  • School Resource Officers
  • Other Emergency Services

Students are given the opportunity to understand what it is like for someone to be under the influence of alcohol or controlled substances, through the use of simulator devices. Students will learn how drug dogs can search and identify illegal substances. Students will observe some of the techniques and equipment used by SWAT members. Students will have an opportunity to observe a Police Chase where Stop Sticks will be deployed and ending in a High Risk Traffic Stop. The students will experience a day at a Police Academy and get a tour at the Milford Lake Hatchery.

We will also mix in several fun activities (Swimming, Bowling, Spin City) to make the week not only educational but also enjoyable.
