See Duluth police work firsthand

Duluth teens who are interested in law enforcement will be able to get a hands-on look at police work thanks to a Duluth Police Department program.

The Duluth Police Department Explorers Program will cover topics such as handcuffing, traffic stops, crime scene investigation and domestic crisis intervention.

Program advisers will host an introductory meeting to explain more about the program and field questions from kids and parents at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Public Safety Building, 2030 N. Arlington Ave.

The program is open to ages 15-20, but if you’re older than 18, you must have the intent to enroll in a law enforcement program.

Regular meetings will be held from 6-8:30 p.m. every other Sunday during the fall, and every Sunday during the spring. It all leads up to an April statewide conference in Rochester, Minn.

For questions about the program, contact Officer Amber Peterson at (218) 213-1303 or, or Officer Chris Johnson at (218) 464-3708 or
