FAYETTEVILLE -- The Fayetteville Police Department is giving
kids a chance to go through the ropes to become a police officer. The camp
started today with some early morning PT and continued to basic marching
As the week progresses, the kids will become more and more
experienced and they prepare for their final test at the end of the week. Officials
say that this camp gives these kids an opportunity to learn skills that are
necessary later in life.
Officer Tyler Hogan says that “the
first day is kind of like a practice session but during the week most of these
kids want to be in the military or be police officers so I’m just kind of
working with them both but so that they get a feel for what they might be doing
later in life.”
The camp comes to a close on Friday with a skills review
and a graduation in the afternoon.
