Today was day one of the joint HSPD/GCSO Teen Police Academy. The students learned about how the departments are organized and what the academy is all about. We then had a tour of the department and had a great lunch provided by Firehouse Subs Southcenter Shopping Center and Mrs. Carol Lacey of West Shores. We then loaded up and went to T-Rex Fun Spot for Laser Tag and the Ropes Course. Big thank you to all our sponsors today!
