PAOLA — Three boys from Paola High School are going to get a taste of what a career in law enforcement would be like during a special week-long academy next week.
PHS seniors Christopher Shell and Alex LaFrance will join junior Christian Dunmeyer at the Cadet Law Enforcement Academy scheduled to take place June 2-7 at the Kansas Highway Patrol Training Academy in Salina.
The academy is a youth program sponsored by Kansas Highway Patrol, Kansas American Legion and Kansas American Legion Auxiliary.
The academy offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to gain knowledge regarding training and responsibilities of all law enforcement officials. Upon graduation, students should better understand, respect and appreciate law enforcement personnel at all levels, according to the academy’s website.
