Did you ever think you might want to be a police officer when you were a child? Members of APD's Junior Police Academy got a taste of it this week.  

The kids attending were exposed to elements of cadet life including discipline, customs and courtesies and physical condition.  

The kids also got to rappel with the SWAT team, and do a little marching as well.

APD has sponsored the JPA for 10 years. The current JPA counselors are former JPA participants, who intend to apply for APD once they reach the minimum age.
