Sheriff's Leadership Camp sign-up due

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Putnam County Sheriff Mark Frisbie today announced the 29th Annual Indiana Sheriff's Youth Leadership Camp will be held in June and July.

There will be two camp sessions this year: the first session will be held June 23-25 serving the northern part of the state at Ross Camp in West Lafayette.

The second session will be held July 7-9 at Waycrosss Episcopal Camp in Morgantown (Brown County) serving the southern part of the state.

The Sheriff's Youth Leadership Camp is a program provided by the Indiana Sheriff's Association for boys and girls who are currently in the seventh grade or eighth grade of school and are interested in learning more about a possible career in law enforcement.

"The camp provides a very meaningful experience and relationship with other campers from throughout the state and sheriff officers who serve as counselors and instructors," Frisbie said in making the announcement.

Any boy or girl interested in attending the camp should contact the Sheriff's Office or their school counselor for an application and additional information.

The Sheriff announced that arrangements can probably be made to provide the camp registration fee through a local business or civic organization for anyone interested.

My son said he would only go if he got a limo tour of West Lafayette and dinner at Hooter's.

And First Class tickets to Disney World for the entire family.

This is like Tony Sprano conducting an "Ethics in Business" seminar for kids.

......and a fancy new SUV to crash, er, I mean drive around in. What was the story on that crashed Sheriff's department SUV that sat behind the jail for awhile and then was hauled away on a flatbed wrecker? I don't remember reading about the wreck in the scanner.
