The Lafayette Police Department will be hosting its second Junior Police Academy on Monday.

The cadet academy welcomes ages 13-15 and will run from Monday, July 19th thru Friday, July 23rd.

They will be serving the community through service.

The academy will conclude with a closing ceremony where each cadet is issued certificates of recognition by the Lafayette Chief of Police Thomas Glover.

LPD says they would like to recognize the local businesses who have provided meals, snacks and t-shirts to each cadet which allows the program to be completely free for participants.

* Buffalo Wild Wings

* Super 1 Foods (W. Willow location)

* Dickey’s Barbecue Pit

* Fraternal Order of Police, Lafayette Lodge #5

* Magnolia State Peace Officers Association, Lafayette Chapter
