The Geneva PD will host a Junior Police Academy this summer for kids in grades 6-8. It will be held at the Geneva City Hall from July 25-29, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Some of the topics that will be covered during the Academy include:
- Patrol procedures.
- Crime scene investigation and collecting evidence.

The deadline for sign ups will be July 15.
