In July of 2022, the Firestone Police Department hosted 22 teens from Firestone for a 4-day Teen Police Academy. Students had a full few days! Officer Dunker and Officer Neugebauer enjoyed sharing about all aspects of a career in law enforcement. A few highlights include:
Fingerprinting & Handcuffing
K9 Presentation & Demonstration
Bomb Squad Presentation
Use of Force Continuum & Simulator
Traffic Stops & Accidents
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 Firestone’s Jersey Mike’s, Papa John’s and Blackjack Pizza, and Chick-Fil-A of Longmont for donating lunches to the participants.
Information about the 2023 Summer Teen Academy will be released at the end of the school year.
