The Connecticut State Police and the American Legion announce the application period for the upcoming Connecticut State Police Youth Week.
Thanks to the American Legion for sponsoring such a great program, State Police Youth Week will be held July 9 – July 15, 2017.
The Connecticut State Police, in conjunction with the American Legion, run an annual “State Police Youth Week” open to 16 and 17 year old high school students throughout Connecticut.
Youth week is modeled after Connecticut State Police recruit training and provides high school students a unique opportunity to gain insight into the training, duties and expectations of Connecticut State Troopers. This program is a mini-Connecticut State Police Academy, and a National model for the American Legion.
Throughout the week of training, all youth week cadets will participate in a variety of mental and physical challenges including patrol techniques, use of laser speed measuring equipment, accident investigation, emergency vehicle driving, firearms training, and criminal investigation. The cadets will also participate in daily physical conditioning, daily inspections, drill & ceremony, and 5:15 a.m. reveille.
The week concludes with the Warrior’s Path safety & survival course followed by a Graduation ceremony. Warrior’s Path represents the culmination of all of the skills and knowledge the recruits learned during the week, it is designed to emphasize the importance of teamwork and overcoming adversity.
