Teen Academy

Today our participants attended their first day of teen academy. After being welcomed by WPD Interim Chief Haubert and Arvada Police Chief Strate, we took a class photo and then had an opportunity to do a team builder activity. Our teens had an Intro to Policing/ History of Policing class which led to a thoughtful group discussion with the SRO cadre. Everyone was given an in depth tour of our police department and then enjoyed a very generous lunch provided by Olive Garden. In the afternoon our teens were given a class by Dispatch Supervisor Emily Peek which generated a few possible employment inquires. Our teens were then presented with a uniform/ equipment/ typical day in the life class presented by Sgt. Smith. We finished the day with a presentation from Detectives with the North Metro Task Force.

Drug Take Back

Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That's dangerous and often tragic. That's why it was great to see thousands of folks from across the country clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in - safely and anonymously - a record amount of prescription drugs.
