For the second summer in a row, the Newington Police Department hosted a free Youth Academy at its Milk Lane training facility. Seventeen police officers and three interns guided the group through eight-hour shifts Monday to Friday. They went through interactive demonstrations, classroom instruction and physical agility testing.
Connecticut Insurance Exchange founder Ron Tregoning joined the group this week, capturing activities on camera. Participants received a digital photo album when they “graduated” Friday, courtesy of the company.
