MARSHALL COUNTY — Marshall County Sheriff Matt Hassel announced the third annual Marshall County Law Enforcement Appreciation Camp. The camp session this year will be held Thursday, June 20, through Sunday, June 23, at Potawatomi Wildlife Park, 16998 SR 331, Tippecanoe.
This camp is a program provided by the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department for boys and girls who are currently in the seventh or eighth grade of school and interested in learning more about what law enforcement does or who are considering a possible career in law enforcement. The camp provides a very meaningful experience and relationship with other campers from the northern part of the state and deputies and police officers who serve as counselors and instructors.
Multiple police demonstrations are put on during the camp ranging from S.W.A.T teams, police and medical helicopters, bomb squad, K9, etc. Campers will learn to work as part of team as well as learn valuable leadership skills. Campers will also be taught gun safety from Indiana Law Enforcement Academy certified firearms instructors.
Any boy or girl in the seventh or eighth grade interested in attending the camp should have your parents contact Deputy Travis Oneal at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office at (574) 341-4526 or email him at [email protected] Students can also contact your local school counselor for an application and additional information or visit the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page.
Hassel announced the camp is free thanks to several local individuals and businesses providing donations. If campers need assistance getting to camp Hassel will make arrangements for a ride.
