Greenville Police Department hosts Youth Academy Camp

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Greenville Police Department is getting kids involved in the community by hosting a Youth Academy camp.

Each year the department gets kids involved in police work by having a week long youth academy camp. The free camp teaches kids about law enforcement and they will learn about safety, CPR, and forensics. The Red Cross shows the children how to pack for an emergency situation. Sergeant Mike Broadwell says this is a great experience for kids and officers.

“It just builds good relationships between the youth and police officers, they come in for an entire week, spend the week with us and learn about the different requirements within the department and things we do,” says Mike Broadwell.

Broadwell says he wants the kids to know that officers are there to help in any way they can.
