25 Area Teens Are 'Job Shadowing' Rapid City Law Enforcement

“I can’t wait to be a cop,” says one student participating in the eight-week program introducing young people to police work.

Shooting guns, driving a patrol car and examining drug paraphernalia are among the experiences provided during the YO! RCPD Academy program, according to a story in the Rapid City Journal. A coordinator with Partnership Rapid City credits the police for the program's growing popularity.
