The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Support Services Unit (SSU), K9 Team, Bike Patrol, and Special Operations Team (SOT) organized a Junior Police Academy for children ages 4-12 at the Harriett Brown Community Center rear parking lot in Prince Frederick on Saturday, April 3.
The event aimed to provide young children with a glimpse of what it takes to become a police officer. The mini academy was a fun-filled day that included a variety of activities, such as an obstacle course, a patrol vehicle showcase, drone flights, a motor and bike patrol demonstration, and a visit from K9 Dexter.
The Junior Police Academy was a huge success, and Sheriff Ricky Cox expressed his pride in all the young recruits. At the end of the event, a pinning ceremony was held, and Sheriff Cox awarded a certificate of completion, a Sheriff’s badge, and some groovy sunglasses to the deputy recruits.
The Calvert County Parks and Recreation sponsored the event, and the Sheriff’s Office thanked them for their contribution.
