In June of 2023, the Firestone Police Department hosted 24 teens from Firestone for a 4-day Teen Police Academy. Students had a packed few days learning about many aspects of a career in law enforcement and other safety service positions. Firestone School Resource Officers Dunker and Neugebauer coordinated the Teen Academy.
A few highlights of the academy include:
K9 Presentation & Demonstration
Bomb Squad Presentation
Use of Force Continuum & Simulator
Fire Department Presentation
We appreciate the support and participation from Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District, Carbon Valley Emergency Management Agency, and Weld County Sheriff’s Office, including Weld County SWAT, Weld County K9, and the Weld County Bomb Squad.
And a big thank you to the following Firestone restaurants for donating lunches to the participants last week: Jersey Mike’s, Marcos Pizza, Papa John’s, and Qdoba.
