Washington State Patrol Hosts Kiwanis Youth Law Enforcement Career Camp

Washington State high school juniors and seniors with an interest in law enforcement as a career will have an opportunity to spend a week this summer learning about the roles and job opportunities within law enforcement.

Applications are currently being accepted for the 36th Annual Washington State Patrol-Kiwanis Youth Law Enforcement Career Camp to be held at the Washington State Patrol Academy in Shelton from July 7 through July 13, 2013. Applications can be downloaded from the State Patrol’s Home Page, under “Outreach.” The application deadline is May 10, 2013.

The purpose of the camp is to provide selected high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to explore various job opportunities in the law enforcement field. The youth will have exposure to what law enforcement officer’s encounter on a daily basis and to show how to successfully handle situations in a professional manner.

The WSP and other police departments will provide officers as staff members to instruct and serve as counselors. Guest speakers from various agencies will provide first-hand information to the students. This gives the students a variety of experiences and exposure to federal, state, county and local law enforcement as a possible career path. Many students who attend this week-long camp go on to have careers in the criminal justice field.

This academy is sponsored and paid for by Washington Kiwanis clubs statewide and supporters.
