CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Students wanting to learn what it's like to be a police officer can get their chance, again this year.

The Cedar Rapids Police Department has opened registration for their 2015 Youth Academy for students in kindergarten through 8th grade.

Students will have the opportunity to learn more about being a police officer and serving the community by participating in the academy.

The youth participants will get a tour of the Cedar Rapids Police station and gain knowledge in an array of areas including uniforms, K-9 Unit, Special Response Team, Crime Scene Unit, Physical Training and more.

Registration will be open until March 23rd (or until the classes are full), but class sizes are limited.

The Academy is $25 per student and they must have permission from a parent to participate.

Students who have not previously attended a Youth Academy will be given first preference.

The Academy will be held from 9:00 a.m. until Noon on the following dates:

  • June 16th and June 17th (For students entering Kindergarten through 1st Grade)
  • June 23rd and June 24th (For students entering 2nd Grade through 4th Grade)
