We received exciting news from the Owensboro Police Department late last week!  They will be offering the first EVER Youth Citizens Academy this summer.

The camp will be open to High School Juniors & Seniors.  The program will also be offered to College Students.

According to OPD, The purpose of the Citizen Police Academy is to foster better communication between citizens and police through education. The Academy will create a nucleus of well-informed citizens who possess greater insight into police practices and services. Graduates of the Academy can share their knowledge and experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen understanding of the role and function of their police department.

The OPD does an amazing job with all the programs they offer.  I love that they are taking a successful program one step further and offering it to our youth!
