In the summer of 2023, KPD joined forces with District C, who provided some insight on ways the agency can facilitate interest in the law enforcement profession and the agency decided to put ideas into action. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results from working side by side with the District C students as it only solidified that Kinston and Lenoir County are definitely in good hands. Who better to learn from than our youth!
The KPD Inspire Summer Camp consisted of a two-day academy for teenagers that consisted of numerous activities and law enforcement topics. Some of the most memorable activities included the mock crime scene and the hanging out with the SWAT team. We are excited to announce that the 2024 KPD Inspire Summer Camp will be even bigger and better than 2023.
The agency also kicked off “Lunch with the Law” in 2023. Officers visited several schools in the fall and will finish up with the remaining schools on the backend of the school year. We don’t know who had more fun, the students or the officers.
