The Amherst and The University of Massachusetts Police Departments are pleased to announce the dates of the fourth annual Police Youth Adventure Academy!
The 2011 Amherst and UMass Police Youth Adventure Academy is a one-week program being held Monday, July 18th, to Friday, July 22nd, 2011, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Youth entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades are eligible to attend. The academy is FREE and size is limited to 20 youth. Preference will be given to Amherst residents and UMass-affiliated families (where a parent/guardian is an employees or student at UMass, for example).
Similar to a Citizens Police Academy, students will attend morning classroom sessions held at both the Amherst and UMass Police Departments with lectures, role-plays and interactive demonstrations by Amherst and UMass Police Officers in the areas of law, crime scene investigation, defensive tactics, patrol procedures and Internet safety to name just a few. Most afternoon sessions will be held at our Adventure-Based Ropes Course at the Norwottuck Range where we will promote teamwork, communication and strategy building.
