LaPorte County Sheriff John Boyd encourages the youth of the area to attend the 36th annual Indiana Sheriff’s Youth Leadership Camp in June.
The four-day camp beginning June 23 allows students to gain knowledge about law enforcement and participate in team building exercises and squad competitions. Students will see what deputy sheriffs do on a daily basis along with self-defense, SWAT, K9, gang and narcotics enforcement and SCUBA demonstrations.
The LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office will pay the $25 fee for any seventh or eighth grade student wanting to attend the camp. Applications to attend are available at the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department or any LaPorte County school.
