The 2022 Millstadt Police Department Youth Academy wrapped up last week.  Officers Witschie and Ettling, as well as some volunteers, lead 19 kids ages 9-12 throughout the week on a great experience.  There were plenty of special    presentations from various law enforcement officials.  Topics included CPR, bike safety, St. Clair County Special Response Team, Taser, firearms safety, SCUBA rescue, K9 demonstration, and much more!  But they just did not stick around town.  They took a tour of the St. Clair County 9-1-1 center, played laser tag at The E.D.G.E., went to the Laumeier Sculpture Park, and St. Louis Zoo.  Visit our Facebook page for more photos.  The youth academy is held towards the end of July every year.  Announcements regarding applications are posted on our website and Facebook page.
