KLEA 2017

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Villa Rica Police Department were glad to host the first Kids Law Enforcement Academy (KLEA) week-long summer day camp. Fifty kids, 25 from Villa Rica and 25 from unincorporated Douglas County, received lessons in Patrol operations, boat safety, bike safety, evidence gathering, nutrition/physical fitness, and had opportunities to play games and make their own tie-died shirts. The response from the kids and their parents has been tremendous, and we plan on making the KLEA camps a new summertime tradition.
