SHOUT OUT: In what is believed to be a first for any youth academy in the U.S., Bogota police cadets this Wednesday will receive intensive hands-on SCUBA training for search-and-rescue missions.

Cadets at the Bogota Police Department Youth Emergency Services Academy “will experience the use of SCUBA as a component of water search and rescue activities,” under the tutelage of Sgt. Craig Lynch, the program director, officials said.

The Bogota program prides itself on being on the cutting edge of academies through the unique experiences it offers. All are aimed at “encouraging volunteerism and community involvement and developing leadership, confidence, competence, integrity and self-esteem.”

The eight-day program began last week.



Wednesday’s SCUBA training at the Bogota Swim Club on Feller Place begins at 9 a.m.
