Law Enforcement students at EVIT will take part in Academy Week March 24-28.
Media contact: CeCe Todd (480) 461-4032
High school students in the Law Enforcement program at the East
Valley Institute of Technology will be put through their paces by the
Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, police, U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine
Corps during Academy Week March 24-28.
Law Enforcement instructor Tony Garcia said the week’s activities
will push EVIT students to their limits and show them what it would be
like to participate in an actual police academy boot camp.
Many EVIT Law Enforcement alumni who went through Academy Week themselves will be on hand to help out.
Academy Week will be every day from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and from
noon to 2:30 p.m. at the Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus, 1601 W.
Main Street, Mesa. Media are welcome to come out and cover the
activities any day next week – but Garcia said the best days, especially
for visual purposes, would be Monday, Tuesday or Friday.
