The American Legion Department of Indiana is proud to announce that enrollment is open for the Indiana Youth Cadet Law Enforcement Academy and they are currently accepting applications for the 2021 class.
The Indiana Youth Cadet Law Enforcement Academy, a partnership between the Indiana Troopers Youth Services and The American Legion, Dept. of Indiana, provides first-hand experiences and insight into the operations of law enforcement agencies. The program also affords these highly motivated young people an opportunity to consider law enforcement as a potential career choice.
“If this program changes one life, keeps one at-risk youth off the streets and out of a body bag if it redirects one Hoosier youth life from negative to positive, we believe it’s worth it,” said Indiana Youth Cadet Law Enforcement Academy Chairman Mark Gullion.
Registration is open to boys and girls currently in grades 9 thru 12.
“The American Legion believes that our youth have a strong sense of patriotism and a high regard for Law and Order, said Gullion. “The objective of IYCLEA Camp is to provide a first-hand look at the role of a police officer in today’s society.”
Hurry, registration closes soon!
