“Part of the intent of this program is to show the youth of Kauai the different types of job opportunities at KPD,” said Investigative Services Bureau Assistant Chief Bryson Ponce.

Throughout the four-day camp, students will acquire a number of skills like interrogation techniques and evidence collection.

“We look forward to showing some of our island’s youth what it takes to conduct investigations and the important skills that are needed to solve crimes,” said Ponce.

To be a police officer, KPD said you need to be 21-years-old, have a high school diploma and have the desire to serve the community.

The department also said that entry-level positions are concerned at around $65,000 to $68,000 after completing the initial probationary period.

The camp is free and will take place from June 21 to June 23 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. On June 24, it will be between 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The location of the camp is at KPD’s Līhue headquarters on 3990 Kaana Street.
