The Los Angeles Police Department's Hollenbeck Area has joined with Salesian High School to host a National Football League-sponsored Junior Player Development's football camp for the youth in the area.

The camp is two weeks long and is free for children 10-14 years. The children will be taught life skills and character development like discipline, responsibility and teamwork, which can be applied to football as well as life, school, home and the community. LAPD Centurion Football coaches and players will be joining Salesian football coaches to teach the children the introductory skills of football.

The children will graduate from the camp on Saturday, July 28, 2007, at 10:00 AM. Deputy Chief Diaz and other APD Command Staff will be present to address and congratulate the children. After the graduation, Hollenbeck Area will provide a Graduation Barbecue to the children and their families at 12 PM.

There are 80 children currently enrolled.
