It’s just for a few hours this summer.

“If you have time this summer to give 20 hours, and that’s 20 hours over the summer working around their schedule and working alongside police officers to better the City of Denver,” said Marie Dabis, Denver police’s volunteer coordinator.

High school students between the ages of 16 and 19 are invited to apply here before April 25.
