Colorado Springs — Monday marks the 104th anniversary of the Colorado Springs “Junior Police Officer” mission.
Junior police officers, made up of young men between the ages of 11 and 16, used their influence to make a positive difference in the community.
Over the years, junior police officers have evolved into a Colorado Springs cadet police program. It aims to provide a better understanding of law enforcement in young adults.
“They brought these junior police officers and taught them more about law enforcement, and they were actually our first burglars. They really got out there and among a group of peers. It had a positive influence, and it continues today, “Sgt said. Jason Newton said.
The Cadets Program is currently accepting applications in the fall of 2021.
