Teen Summer Police Academy


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:

  • SWAT Presentation
  • Rescue Demonstrations
  • Building Searches
  • K9 Presentation & Demonstration
  • Bomb Squad Presentation
  • Use of Force Continuum & Simulator
  • Traffic Stops
  • 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 the following Firestone restaurants for donating lunches to the participants last week: Jersey Mike’s, Marcos Pizza, Papa John’s, and Qdoba.
