The Youth Police Academy is for those students in 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th grade during the 2007-2008 school year at Peet and Holmes Junior Highs, Cedar Falls High School, Price Lab School, and Valley Lutheran High School. This program will provide the students with an inside look at local law enforcement. During the Youth Police Academy, police administrators, veteran police officers and civilian volunteers instruct students concerning a variety of subjects pertaining to law enforcement. Visit the Black Hawk County Consolidated Dispatch Center, use the Firearms Training Simulator, Taser demonstrations, see equipment used by the Major Incident Response Team, take part in crime scene processing, and many other interesting topics.
