NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - The FBI and Yale University are teaming up to offer a summer camp for teens interested in crime fighting.

The Future Law Enforcement Youth Academy will take place beginning July 24 on the Yale campus.

The weeklong program will include 26 Connecticut high school students. They will be trained on law-enforcement cyber technology and participate in practical exercises in investigative forensics.

The teens will live in Yale residential colleges for the week and be chaperoned by law enforcement officers and FBI employees. The teens must have a grade-point average of at least 2.7 to participate.

Yale police Chief Ronnell Higgins, who helped create the academy, says it is designed to help teach tolerance, unity and the importance of partnerships.
