Teens will get a look of police career during camp

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Area high schools students can attend a camp hosted by the Indiana State Police to learn about a career in law enforcement.

The camps were started 70 years ago by a trooper. Now, the camp has seen more than 40,000 kids over the years.

Students from grades 9 through 12 will learn training tools, combat techniques and military formations.

State trooper and director of the camps, Marc Leatherman, talked with NewsChannel 15 about the program and what he wants kids to get out of it.

The program is July 13-18 at Trine University in Angola.
