ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Rockford Police are looking for a few good boys and girls.
The department is sponsoring a youth and junior police academy this summer. The program is designed for young people who have an interest in working in law enforcement. They say young cadets will learn a lot in the program.
"They get to have tours of the facility, look at all the equipment, and just get an understanding of what a police officer's job is, and how the court system plays into all of this," says Assistant Deputy Chief Pat Hoey.
