Applications are now being accepted for the annual Hamilton County Junior Law Enforcement Academy, a half-day program that highlights law enforcement activities.

This year the theme is “Transformers” with an emphasis on courage, guarding the heart, and making good choices. Campers will interact with officers from around the county and spiritual leaders from the Sheriff’s Office Chaplain’s Division as they learn the importance of making responsible choices. Activities for the day include a ride in a police car, a demonstration by the Emergency Response Team, camp games, learning about healthy choices, and much more.

The Junior Law Enforcement Academy runs 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, June 15, at the Hamilton County 4H Fairgrounds. There is no cost to attend the camp. Camp size is limited with a registration cutoff date of June 1 or when then camp fills.
