Applications are Available for VIPD Summer Programs

Applications are available for the Virgin Islands Police Department sponsored summer programs including P.A.L., S.A.D.D, Weed and Seed and Camp Defy, according to a press release from the V.I. Police Department.
These programs are police sponsored juvenile crime prevention programs that offer recreational, educational, cultural and social programs to youth ages 6 to 16 while strengthening the bond between the police officers and young people.
Police Commissioner Francis encourages parents to sign their children up for the program. "Studies show that youth who interact favorably with police officers gain an early respect for the law, and this contact lessens the chances of them being involved in criminal activity in the future."
Program applications are available at any police station in the territory and can be downloaded from the VIPD Web site at www.vipd.gov.vi.
For more information on the VIPD summer programs on St. Thomas or St. John call the Crime Prevention office 776-1525. For VIPD summer programs on St. Croix call the Crime Prevention office at 773-6393.
Donors are encouraged to contribute to the programs or sponsor a youth. Call the Crime Prevention office to find out how to contribute or act as a sponsor.
