T'ville PD hosts Jr. Law Enforcement Academy

Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

12 to 14 year olds are learning the ins and outs of law enforcement this week in the city of Roses.

The Thomasville Police Department's annual Junior Law Enforcement Academy gives these young people a taste of many emergency agencies including GBI, fire, and EMS.

Officers hope it will encourage some of the kids to pursue careers in law enforcement.

"I thought it would be a good career and so I can catch bad people," said Jr. Law Enforcer Patrick Silvers.

"Since I want to be a police officer I think it will enhance my learning," said Jr. Law Enforcer Andrenique Robinson.

The junior academy runs through Friday at the Thomasville Police training facility on County Farm Road.
