Youth Camp Allows Novato Police to Connect With Kids

The police department is already signing up campers for its summer program.

The Novato Police Department will be hosting a four-day Youth Camp this June for kids in grades 6 through 9.

The four-day camp is an opportunity for the youth of Novato to learn more about the jobs by both civilian and sworn personnel of the Novato Police Department.

“This is an great opportunity for the youth of our community to have a highly interactive, hands-on training by members of our department,” said NPD Lt. Jennifer Welch. “It’s a unique way for officers and non-sworn staff to engage our youth and provide insight to the various positions within our organization.”

Camp topics include: Patrol Operations, K9 Operations, Special Response Team (SWAT), CSI/Evidence Procedures, Investigations, Traffic, Dispatch, Youth Programs and Department Tour.

Attendees will be provided an official youth camp T-shirt at the start of class to wear during camp.

The four-day youth camp takes place June 17-20, Monday through Wednesday from 1-5 p.m. and Thursday from 1-3 p.m. at the Novato Police Department Training Room.

Applications can be located on the Novato Police Department website, novato.org, or available for pick up at the Police Department.

Space is limited and completed applications are due to NPD by May 31, 2013.

For questions or to request an application, contact Lt. Jennifer Welch at jwelch@novato.org.
