The program is open to students age 14 who have completed eighth grade through age 21 who are still enrolled in classes.

Students should have an interest in law enforcement as a possible career.

Classes are held Sunday evenings twice a month and begin Sept. 21 at the West Fargo Police Department.

Topics include drug enforcement, K-9, SWAT, traffic stops, firearms, crime scenes and ride-alongs.

The cost is $40 per student, and class size is limited. Applications are available at the police department.

For information, call Det. Travis Johnson, (701) 433-5500.
