Pioneer Technology Center hosted a Youth Police Academy last week.

The academy was in  partnership with Ponca City Public Schools as well as officers from the Kay County Detention Center and the Ponca City Police Department.

The academy was attended by 16 students from the Kay County area. The students were instructed and participated in hands-on simulations  such as arrest procedures, patrol techniques, defensive tactics, building searches, and use of force.  The students worked through scenarios using the Ponca City Police Department’s Use of Force simulator.
