Moon Teens Graduate from State Police Camp

After completing six-day camp, 55 honored as State Police Cadets.

Two Moon Township teenagers graduated as Pennsylvania State Police Cadets at the annual Allegheny County Camp Cadet in Sharpsburg. 

State Trooper Robin Mungo said Moon residents Travis Sparks and Paige Duffy, both 14, completed the six-day camp July 30. The camp is organized by Mungo and the  state police barracks in Moon Township. 

Mungo said the camp included both a physical training regimen as well as preparation for a career in law enforcement. As part of their training, cadet-trainees were asked to investigate a mock homicide.  

Pittsburgh Police, Allegheny County Police, and the United States Secret Service were among the law enforcement agencies that took part in the camp, Mungo said. 

"Children have the ability to find themselves [at the camp]," Mungo said of the annual camp, which accepts applicants 12 to 14 years of age. "They can realize that they have the ability to do whatever they want." 

Mungo said Sparks and Duffy were among 55 cadet graduates this year. More than 200 children from across Allegheny County applied to take part in the camp.
