The Tequesta Police Department is hosting its first Chief-for-the-Day contest and calling for submissions from fourth and fifth grade students that reside within the Village of Tequesta.
The topic for your essay should be “Why I want to be Police Chief for a Day.” Students should be specific, use at least five hundred words, and of course, be creative! While there will only be one winner, all submissions will be hung throughout the Tequesta Police Department for the month of October (Crime Prevention month). The selected student will be picked up at his or her house on Thursday, October 27, 2016 (if convenient for our winner) by a patrol car and driven to the Police Department to spend the day serving as the honorary Chief of Police. Submissions will be reviewed by all PD members.
The selected candidate will participate in a swearing in ceremony, go behind the scenes for a tour of the Police Department, participate in a mock crime scene investigation, enjoy lunch with some of Tequesta’s finest and take part in other exciting activities. Students are asked to submit their entries by fax, email, mail in or drop off in person to the Police Department by Friday, October 14, 2016 at 5:00 PM.
The winner will be contacted and announced on October 19, 2016. Your submission authorizes the department to print your name and publish photos as the winning contestant.
