The Omaha Police Department’s northeast precinct will hold a four-night youth education training program in early June.
The program is scheduled to run from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. June 3 through June 6 at the northeast precinct at 30th and Taylor Streets, police said.
The mini-academy was developed to offer youths a better understanding of OPD procedures and police service.
The mini-academy will include:
— Police department overview and orientation.
— Gangs, guns and drugs.
— Homicide and domestic violence.
— Internal affairs and crime scene investigations.
— Q & A with the Chief Todd Schmaderer.
The course is free, police said, and teens ages 15 to 19 are urged to preregister at the northeast precinct front desk by 5 p.m. May 20. Identification and parent permission are required for those under 19. Police said all participants must register.
