2017 Kiwanis Law Enforcement Camp
July 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - July 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
About the Event
The purpose of the Kiwanis Youth camp is to provide selected high school juniors and seniors, with an interest in a career in law enforcement, an opportunity to explore the various areas of job opportunities in that field. It offers exposure to problems encountered by law enforcement officers on a daily basis and how to handle these situations in a professional manner.
The Washington State Patrol and other police departments provide officers as staff to instruct and be counselors to the students. This gives students a variety of experiences and expertise in other areas of federal, state, county, and local law enforcement.
With each class a close bond is formed and lasting friendships are made. Approximately 80% of the students go on to law enforcement careers.
