Longview Police host a Police Explorer’s Summer Camp each June. This camp is designed to give the participants hands-on experience as to what police officers do on a daily basis. The camp is open to students at least 14 years old and have completed the 8th Grade.
The camp will include training similar to an officer’s training, along with classroom education. This training includes accident investigation, traffic stops, finger-printing, crime scene investigation, and actual hands on scenarios related to several of the topics. There will also be demonstrations by SWAT and K-9.
The cost of the program is $20.00 per attendee. This fee covers a daily lunch for the student and camp T-shirt.
If you are interested in attending the summer program please contact Officer Josh Marrs at 903-331-2858 or downloading the registration form.
