ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Officers are concerned enough about our youth that they are being proactive with them.
Thursday, they taught Albany High students about police work.
The Law and Justice class at Albany High investigated a mock car crash.
They used math, science, and language
skills to look at evidence, interview witnesses, and fill out a case report.
Albany and Dougherty County traffic cops supervised the lessons.
Albany High Instructor Lynn Miller said "They are going to determine actually how fast the car was going. Because we have one driver is going to say I was going ten miles per hour, and the other one says I was going 30 miles per hour. So the students are to determine how fast the drivers were going."
Lynn Miller is a former Police Officer.
She said even though many of her students won't likely pursue careers in law enforcement, they enjoy studying it.
