Kids Learn About Police Work

Area kids are getting their chance to be a part of the Bowling Green Police Dept. .

This week the BGPD is holding a Junior Police Academy for children, ages ten to 13-year-olds. The camp gives kids something fun to do during the summer, while teaching them what being a police officer is all about. Camper Rachel Schultz, who wants to be an Explorer when she grows up, said the academy is teaching her a lot.

"We got in a police car and a regular car and we got to act like a good guy and a bad guy," Schultz said.

The kids can also investigate make-believe crime scenes, build computer composites of people and watch police demonstrations. The camp is being held at Greenwood High School and Bowling Green's Police Headquarters. It lasts until July 13.
