For seniors in Greece Central, a very exciting and unique opportunity is set to begin. 30 Students were selected to participate this year in the CIA Academy, an increase of 18 from last year! The CIA Academy is a partnership between the Greece Central School District and the Greece Police Department. Organized through the social studies office for students in Citizens in Action, and led by Officer Jim Leary of GPD, students will meet once a month to learn about and experience first hand, the inner-workings of GPD.
Many students have an interest in law or criminal justice, so this experience will help guide them to their future career decisions. The first session will occur in late October, with one session per month until May. Sessions will cover many topics, including patrol units, investigative work, drug policy, defense tactics, firearms safety, the court system, civil liberties, as well as many guest speakers from the area.
