Youth Academy offers event for disabled kids

The Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department and Developmental Services, Inc. have partnered to offer Disability Friendly Day at the 2018 Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Youth Academy. “We want all Bartholomew County kids to be able to experience our Sheriff’s Youth Academy,” said Sheriff Matt Myers. This will be held Monday, June 4th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Authorities say that the Youth Academy is designed to expose young county residents to role models in public safety as well as to teach them valuable life and safety lessons. The academy presents a wide range of topical training subjects which acquaints attending youth with the goals and functions of a working law enforcement agency.

Bartholomew County special needs youth, ages 7-14, are invited.
