HERSHEY, Pa. (WKBN) – The Pennsylvania State Patrol is offering a program to older teens who are interested in law enforcement.

The Hill Impact Program is a 15-week program for teens 15 to 18 years old. It shows kids what it’s like to be a trooper by providing one-on-one interaction with PSP troopers while learning about law enforcement, crime codes, rules of criminal procedures, physical fitness and more.

Teenagers interested in a career in law enforcement are encouraged to enroll in the free program.

The program takes place at the PSP Academy, known as The Hill, in Hershey, Pa. Participants meet once a week for two hours in the evening and one Saturday a month for three hours.

Any teen who has a serious interest in attending is encouraged to contact Trooper Clint Long no later than January 7, 2022, at ra-sprecruiter-acad@pa.gov or 717-497-4577. Class size is limited.

The FBI also offers a Future Agents in Training Academy in Cleveland. The program allows high school students an opportunity to get a comprehensive look into today’s FBI.

Students are provided with several presentations on topics including terrorism, cybercrime, public corruption, polygraph exams, evidence response, SWAT, and the day-to-day operations of a typical FBI office. Students also learn from special agents, intelligence analysts, language specialists, and professional staff about investigative tactics that include gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and assisting with cases.
