Many police officers are nearing retirement age. Since, there is a shortage of people who want to protect and serve, Ferndale police team has decided to create opportunities for students at Ferndale High School.
According to WXYZ, this new program offers several areas of study, including law enforcement. The police department went to work to encourage students from all backgrounds to learn more about law enforcement.
The school and police department’s program was just honored with a national award for innovation. He wants to see more communities turn a problem into opportunities for youth who want to make a difference.
