Indiana State Police summer youth camps now enrolling

Kids will be out of school in a few weeks, and Indiana State Police say they have the perfect thing for kids to do.  The 2014 Indiana State Police Summer Youth Camps are now enrolling.

The camps are designed to help students get an up close and personal view of law enforcement and the criminal justice system, but more importantly, gain respect for themselves and others. This is all done through programs that reward hard work, dedication and team work.

The camps include demonstrations by SWAT, Explosive Ordinance Disposal, Scuba, Crime Scene Technicians and other specialties. Troopers volunteer to put on demonstrations on a variety of topics. The camp staffs are handpicked law enforcement personnel who dedicate their time to preparing youth for their futures.
