Young people can learn about being a police officer.
If you're a young person whose interested in how police officers do their jobs, you find out by enrolling in the 11th Annual Youth Police Academy sponsored by the Frederick Police Department.
Kids ages 7-14 can learn what it's like to be a police officer by participating in scenarios, learning about stranger-danger and internet safety, and getting a chance to see departmental equipment. They can also dust for fingerprints, see a canine demonstration and process a staged crime scene.
Three sessions will be held at the Charles V. Main Training Center at 6424 Plant Road in Frederick on July 8th, 9th and 10th from 9:00 AM until 12:30 PM. Each session is limited to 50 young people per day.
