GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Forensic investigators took on dozens of new trainees Thursday, who were eager to get on–the–job experience.
Kids at Fun in the Summer camp tried their skills at fingerprinting and mounting a police motorcycle at Riverside Park. Campers also got a first–hand look inside the Grand Junction Bomb Squad's truck. A robot used to detect bombs also made friends with many of the kids. Campers say there was so much to learn, it was difficult to decide on their favorite police skill.
"I learned how to turn on the sirens and everything, and I got to see the guns, and the robot was fun," said camper Juan Martinez.
Kids were also fingerprinted and swabbed for DNA samples. This is the 22nd year the Grand Junction Police Department has shown kids a lighter side of law enforcement.
