Registration Open for 2018 Police Department Youth Academy
Registration is open for the 2018 Cedar Rapids Police Department Youth Academy. Students entering Kindergarten through 8th Grade have the opportunity to learn more about being a Police Officer and serving the community by participating in a Youth Academy at the Cedar Rapids Police Department, 505 1st Street SW.
Youth Academy participants will get a tour of the police station and learn about diverse areas within the Police Department including Uniforms, K-9 Unit, Special Response Team, Crime Scene Unit, Physical Training and more.
The Academy will be held from 9:00 a.m. until Noon on the following dates:
- June 19th and June 20th (For students entering 5th Grade through 8th Grade)
- June 26th and June 27th (For students entering 2nd Grade through 4th Grade)
- July 10th and July 11th (For students entering Kindergarten through 1st Grade)
Early registration is recommended as class sizes are limited. The Academies were popular last year and most of them reached enrollment capacity during the first week of registration. Cost of the Academy is $25 and participants must have parental permission to participate. Students who have not previously attended a Youth Academy will be given first preference.
