The annual Sevierville Police Department Kids Police Camp has been scheduled for Monday, June 18 - Friday, June 22. Camp will take place daily from 8:00AM - 4:00PM.
The purpose of Police Camp is to provide the opportunity for young men and women, 11 -14 years of age, to learn basic police skills in a SAFE, organized and structured environment. Activities and classes will be conducted primarily at the Sevierville Police Department, with field trips planned to the Gatlinburg Sportsman’s Club and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The camp director and staff are comprised of professional school resource officers who are trained and experienced law enforcement instructors and experts in their individual fields. All Police Camp activities will be supervised and controlled by the camp staff. Parents are welcome and encouraged to visit the camp in progress at their convenience.
Planned activities include self-defense, safety with firearms, fingerprinting and many other duties performed by police officers. Campers will also take part in practical exercises simulating situations such as building searches and traffic stops.
