Join the Cedar Rapids Police Youth Academy


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -  There is still time for the youth of Cedar Rapids to sign up for the Cedar Rapids Police Youth Academy. There are still openings for kids from 5th-12 grades to attend this year's academy. The youth recruits will be broken into two age groups and times. Kids entering 5th through 8th grade will attend July 6-10th and kids entering 9-12th grades will attend July 20-24.

All classes are held at Hawkeye Downs with the exception of Friday, which is Graduation Day, which will be held at the Cedar Rapids Police Department. The recruits will learn about many facets of the Cedar Rapids Police Department and many hands-on learning experiences will be offered.

If you have a child that is in this age group, please have them contact the Crime Prevention Bureau at 319-286-5440 for an application. There is a $30 registration fee which includes materials, snacks and a t shirt.
