Thomasville --  Some south Georgia youngsters are getting an early start on careers in law enforcement.   

The Thomasville Police Department is hosting its first Junior Law Enforcement Academy.    It's geared toward kids who are interested in learning more about law enforcement.  The two-week academy covers Taser training, traffic stops, Crime Scene Investigation, Swat Team training, and more.

"We saw an interest of kids between the ages of ten and sixteen, and we decided that we will give them something to do over the summer, and included them in what we do as a career," said Sgt. Rachel Denmark of the Thomasville Police Department. "Because we have a lot of kids who are interest in what we do but don't necessarily understand the nature of our jobs. So what we are doing for these two weeks is taking them through just basically everything that we do, from judge mental shooting in which we are doing today and Taser demonstration."   

Students will graduate with certificates of completion and T-shirts after the two-week course.
