The Grain Valley Police Department held Camp Focus, July 15th – 19th. The objective of the camp was to provide the youth of Grain Valley with an opportunity to creative positive interactions between law enforcement and the youth through education and mentoring.
Attendees of Camp Focus completed intense training including lectures regarding internet safety, behavior science, drug & alcohol prevention, mental health information and life skills techniques. They took part in role play situations, peer panels, and demonstrations.
They also spent the afternoon at Watkins Mill State Park, fishing and engaged in other activities with volunteers from Grain Valley’s VIPS – Volunteers in Police Service and Grain Valley Police officers.
