Teen Summer Police Academy

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
  • SWAT Presentation
  • Rescue Demonstrations
  • Building Searches
  • K9 Presentation & Demonstration
  • Bomb Squad Presentation
  • Use of Force Continuum & Simulator
  • Traffic Stops & Accidents
  • Drone Demonstration
  • 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.
