The San Diego County Sheriff's Department released photos from last month’s two-day summer camp for middle school students.
“Those who finished the scavenger hunt first around Balboa Park got the VIP treatment during a Padres game over the weekend,” San Diego County Sheriff’s officials posted on their Facebook site.
Activities planned for the event included an introduction to law enforcement through demonstrations by the Sheriff's K‐9, Motor, Bomb/Arson, Search and Rescue, Special Enforcement Detail, and the Crime Lab, Off‐Road Enforcement Team.
School and community service organizations recommended students who participated, sheriff’s officials said through a written news release.
Sheriff’s Department organizers partnered with the San Diego Hall of Champions to host the 50 youngsters. The event was held July 26 and July 27.
“The program aims to promote friendships, confidence, leadership and positive life choices,” organizers wrote. “The camp also provides an opportunity for interaction with law enforcement role models so campers know they can turn to deputies for help and support at school or on the streets.”
