At-Risk Youth Get Hands-On Training with the CCPD

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - They have had a few brushes with the law, but that is not stopping some high school students from wanting to become police officers.

Some students who have been through the juvenile justice system spent the better part of Wednesday afternoon at the Corpus Christi Police Department's Academy Training Center, looking to turn their lives around for the best.

The Hammons Education Leadership Program focuses on at-risk students by introducing them to career opportunities through hands-on experiences.
