The Frederick County Sheriff's Office Community Deputy Unit is partnering with Frederick County Parks and Recreation to offer the Junior Deputy Academy again in 2017 for children in the Middletown, Myersville, and Wolfsville area. This 4 hour program provides kids ages 5-11 with a close-up look at Law Enforcement and tools of the trade. The Children will have the opportunity to learn what it is like to be a police officer by participating in scenarios, being exposed to mock incidents, having a chance to see departmental equipment, and watching K-9 demonstration. Participants will learn about gun safety and other important topics. Participants should be prepared to be outdoors the whole time, and should be able to participate in physical fitness activities.
The Junior Deputy Academy will be Wednesday June 28 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Community Park in Middletown. Registration is limited. Participants will be divided into separate age groups.
Registration is open between May 8th and May 31st. Registration will be closed on May 31st unless all available positions are filled prior to this date.
