Tell City law enforcement hosts 'Camp with a Cop'

Posted: Updated:

Police and deputies in Tell City hosted 'Camp with a Cop' in July.

Deputy Sheriff Eric Dickenson says this is the eighth year they've put on the camp for kids in grades six through nine.

Dickenson says the camp focuses on teaching children self confidence and respect for law enforcement while giving them real-world police training.

"We're hoping to plant some seeds, so later on in life, it's a recruitment measure to for us," says Dickenson. So, we hope to get some police officers out of the kids that we get to have camp with."
