The Oelwein Police Department will be teaming up with area youth to “Camp with a Cop”. July 19th – 21st, Oelwein Wings Park and Sacred Heart students between the ages of 10 – 12 years old will have a chance to go camping with some of the Oelwein Police Department “Cops” at Oelwein City Park. The camp is designed for children who are or may be interested in law enforcement and who enjoy the outdoors. The camp will focus on team building and positive relations with police officers. There will be classroom type lessons, hands-on activities including a daily regimen of physical training for fun and other various activities. Demonstrations will also be given from the K-9 Police Unit, Oelwein PD Tactical Team, special investigations and Fire & EMS. The camp will strive to connect our youth, law enforcement and criminal justice system in a positive way with character building tools to deter juvenile crime and violence. The friendship and trust built through this structured camp will help teach our youth that they have a friend behind the badge.
There is no cost for the event. Applications may be obtained at www.oelweinpolice.org or picked up at the Oelwein Police Department. For more information and for the camp agenda, visit the Oelwein Police website or contact Lt. Ron Voshell at email@example.com or call 319-283-4311.
