LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A three-day camp allows children to interact with officers and learn about police work.

Registration is available for the inaugural Lafayette Junior Police Academy. The academy will take place July 15-17 at the Lafayette Police Department Training Center.

Lt. Jim Taul said he hopes those who participate will learn about responsibility and self-discipline.

“We want them to have fun [and] teach them about what we do. But we also want to steer them in a right direction in life, so that maybe they won’t make some mistakes that others make along life’s path,” said Taul.

Registration will be limited to the first 30 paid applicants. Children within Tippecanoe County ages 12 to 14 can apply.
