Glenville, WV- With summer just around the corner, final preparations are being made for the annual Glenville State College Criminal Justice Summer Camp. The four-day event will take place June 15th through June 19th. Organizers say it is a perfect opportunity for students in grades nine through twelve to get an in-depth look at what goes on at crime scenes and in the criminal justice system.

“The 2014 Glenville State College Criminal Justice Camp will teach the students a basic understanding of crime scene investigation. Hands-on activities will allow them to process a crime scene, develop suspects, and prosecute the suspects in a mock court proceeding,” said GSC Center for Criminal Justice Studies Lab Director Ron Taylor.

“This years camp will incorporate sessions and demonstrations from various agencies from around the state. Campers can use that information to help determine which of those fields they may want to pursue as a future career,” said Taylor.

Groups scheduled to take part in the camp include:  West Virginia State Police members with their Crime Scene Response Truck, West Virginia Division of Natural Resources representatives with their patrol boat, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services personnel to demonstrate man tracking, West Virginia National Guard members to teach proper firearms handling and physical agility, and an underwater recovery team to teach scuba diving.

Tuition is $350 and will cover food, housing, and camp supplies.

To register or for more information, contact Taylor at or (304) 462-3090 or call Marissa Fox at (304) 462-6280.
