This program utilizes educational and recreational activities to create trust and understanding between police officers and youth. It is based on the conviction that young people - if they are reached early enough - can develop strong positive attitudes towards police officers in their journey through life toward the goal of maturity and good citizenship.
The Perry County Fraternal Order of Police Youth Camp “Camp with a Cop” brings youth under the supervision and positive influence of law enforcement and expands their awareness about the role of a police officer and the reinforcement of the responsible values and attitudes instilled in young people by their parents. Such respect is beneficial to the youth, the police officer, the neighborhood and the community.
The Perry County Fraternal Order of Police Youth Camp “Camp with a Cop” strives to connect our youth and law enforcement and the criminal justice system in a positive way with character building tools to deter juvenile crime and violence; as well as, create interest in possibly getting involved law enforcement later in life.
