High School West junior Christopher Walker participated in the Suffolk County Youth Police Academy during the week of May 7. The academy is designed to help local high school students get hands-on experience and a deeper appreciation of the work of police officers. Through this program, students experience the physical demands of officer training, the intricacies of crime scene investigations and the discipline required to work in the K-9 and aviation units.
