Summer Survival Skills

Demonstrating they work well together both on the streets and in the woods, Amherst and UMass Police Departments are teaming up once again to jointly sponsor a Police Youth Adventure Academy this summer.

The versatile program provides 20 children the golden opportunity to learn police procedures in the morning and then spend afternoons negotiating a ropes course.

And best of all, the entire one week program is free!  So hurry up parents, enrollments are limited.

If you like this story help make this happen:

I've heard a lot of good things about this one week camp!

This sounds really cool and a great community builder too.

May I offer a suggestion -- a genuine suggestion to the APD & UMPD?

Do something similar for the various UM Freshman Orientation sessions this summer. Let the incoming student's first impression of your officers be the nice guys (and gal) in T-shirts who did something nice for them.

You get 2-3 UM students saying "hey, I know that officer, don't you dare throw that bottle at him" and it won't get thrown.
