       Junior Law Cadet Program         


  Since 1990, The American Legion and the Virginia State Police have teamed up to provide the youth of Virginia with an opportunity to experience firsthand what it takes to become a law enforcement officer.  The American Legion Junior Law Cadet Program offers a fast paced week of orientation to law enforcement training and insight to the criminal justice system.  

  The American Legion Junior Law Cadet Program is an intensive five-day session in which young men and women are exposed to almost every facet of law enforcement.  During the instruction at the academy, the students will receive orientation to criminal investigation, patrol techniques, accident investigation, firearms safety, use of radar and VASCAR, and marksmanship.  The cadets will also learn about the history of policing, the drug problems facing all Virginians today and the State Police recruitment process.
