JULY 24-28 and JULY 31-AUGUST 4: CRESTVIEW POLICE YOUTH ACADEMY, Warriors Hall, Whitehurst Municipal Building, 201 Stillwell Blvd., 9 a.m. to noon for kids ages 7-11; 1-4 p.m. for those ages 12-15. What other summer camp offers opportunities for kids to dust for fingerprints, meet trained K9 officers, and check out cool equipment and weaponry? The Crestview Police Youth Academy is conducted by certified and sworn law enforcement officers to enhance responsible citizenship, provide positive interaction with police officers, educate kids about the challenges and responsibilities of police work, and encourage young people to take part in other youth programs offered by the Police Department, such as the Law Enforcement Explorers program, which will soon be reestablished in Crestview. Choose either academy, July 24-28 or July 31-Aug. 4. The program is free, and participants will receive a T-shirt, water bottle and carry bag. Applications are available at the Police Department or on our website, www.crestviewpd.org, and are due July 20. For information, please contact Officer Wanda Hulion, 305.2905, or Officer Sam Kimmons, 305.7831. Business and individual donations to fund the academy, which is not supported by taxpayer dollars, are welcome.
