shreveport, la — The Shreveport Police Department’s annual three day Youth Basketball Camp is slated for this week.
The camp will be held at the Southern Hills Park Community Center located in the 1000 block of Bert Kouns Industrial Loop and will run from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on July 18 though July 20, 2012. The camp is designed to encourage character development in children ages six to 17 years old. The instructional time community liaison officers will spend with the youths is tailored to help them develop athletically as well as enhance their abilities to embrace an appreciation of good sportsmanship and a healthy respect for others.
As always, our media partners are encouraged to attend and see first hand this unique opportunity for area children to interact with law enforcement officers in a non-traditional setting while learning skills that will serve them for a lifetime.
