INDIANA (www.incnow.tv) -- The Indiana State Police is once again offering it's summer Law Enforcement Camp to kids from 5th grade through high school.

There are 22 different camps around the state for various age groups and each one offers a unique experience for those kids. Each camp shows kids all the different elements of what it's like to be in the line of duty.

"This year we are bringing in a driving simulator which is set up like a police car, thanks to Team MyPep and Downy Insurance." Officer Marc Leatherman, Senior Trooper with the Indiana State Police said. "We have a firearm simulator that runs scenarios that's all laser interactive so they'll get to see some of the high-stress situations we get into."

Interested parents should contact the Indiana State Police or log-on to trooper.org for dates and locations for each camp.
