Register for the 2016 SCMPD Summer Camp

SAVANNAH, Ga. –  Registration is open for the 2016 Savannah Chatham Metro Police Department Summer Camp.

The camp begins on June 6th for boys and Jun 13th for girls.

The four five-day camps will take place at Savannah State University’s Police Headquarters. Campers will learn skills in character building, goal setting, decision making, crime reporting, web safety, self-defense and much more. Learning strategies will include guest speakers, field trips and hands-on activities. Youth also will be exposed to many aspects of college life with support of SSU.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Juvenile Officers launched the camp under the direction of Maj. Richard Zapal to develop rapport between youth and the law enforcement community early in life.

The camp targets children ages 8-14 of all socioeconomic backgrounds. The initiative is designed to provide youngsters with alternatives to risky or criminal behavior during the summer. All Chatham County children meeting the age requirement are invited to attend.

Applications are available at all SCMPD precincts, police headquarters and online here.

The application deadline is May 1.
