The Greenburgh Police Department is currently accepting applications for their 13th annual summer Police Youth Camp.
Beginning in early July, the seven-week-long program is designed to reveal and educate teens aged 13 to 17 about numerous law enforcement jobs. Even if the children do not chose a career in the field in the future, they will have earned a better understanding of the criminal justice system.
The campers will undergo physical training and sit through lectures to comprehend the laws and town issues, as well as take part in demonstrations and reenactments.
The program will take trips to several law enforcement locations, including the Westchester County Court House, Ottisville Correctional Facility, Roosevelt Island, and Washington, D.C. Visiting speakers will feature representatives from the F.B.I., the United States Secret Service, the District Attorney's Office, and ATF. Campers will also learn First Aid, CPR and water safety, earning certifications in each.
The program is funded by the Lanza Foundation. The Greenburgh Police Department asks that all applications be submitted by Monday, June 13. Applications can be found at the police department, Greenburgh Town Hall, the Theodore D. Young Community Center, Sacred Heart Church, and the Union Baptist Church.
For more information, please contact Sergeant Robert Gramaglia, commanding officer of the Community Affairs Unit, at 914-682-5391.
