The Lima Police Department, in partnership with the Lima City Schools, is now accepting applications for the 2016 LPD High School Summer Police Academy.
The academy will have two separate sessions. The first will run from June 7 to June 10 and the second will run from June 21 to June 24. Each day will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will start at Lima Senior High School.
The academy is open to any high school student in Allen County, including incoming freshman, but space is limited to 50 students per session.
Throughout the four days, students will experience a wide variety of topics including but not limited to crime scene investigation, fingerprinting and identification, defensive tactics, demonstrations from the multiple specialty teams at LPD, and scenario’s where students will become the police officer.
All students will be provided lunch, snacks and receive a t-shirt. The camp is free of charge and is a great opportunity for students to see what police work is really all about.
