Camp Cadet, hosted by Pennsylvania State Police and the Westmoreland County Camp Cadet Association, provides a week-long camp for kids ages 12 to 15, emphasizing self-discipline, respect, teamwork and community involvement.

It’s not a typical summer camp, but it promises to teach kids about the criminal justice system and the job of a police officer.

Camp Cadet, hosted by the Pennsylvania State Police and the Westmoreland County Camp Cadet Association, provides a week-long camp for kids ages 12 to 15, emphasizing self-discipline, respect, teamwork and community involvement.

Running from July 21 to July 26 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, kids will stay overnight and learn about the different areas of law enforcement.

So far, local organizations like the Greensburg Volunteer Fire Department, the Greensburg Bloodhound Team, Mutual Aid Ambulance, Pennsylvania Game Commission, Westmoreland County coroner and the Westmoreland County Prison are set to participate at the camp.

This year, 50 Westmoreland County kids will be able to participate, excluding kids from Rostraver and South Huntingdon townships. Students from the Southmoreland School District can apply.

Those interested can apply at westmorelandcampcadet.org or pick up an application at the state police station, 100 N. Westmoreland Avenue in Greensburg.

Applications are due by May 15.

Further information can be provided by Cpl. Jason Urbani at 724-832-3288.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
