Students interested in law enforcement careers are invited to apply to participate in the Highway Patrol's Youth Trooper Academy at the South Dakota Law Enforcement Training Center in Pierre this summer.
The Highway Patrol and the American Legion of South Dakota are sponsoring the June 25-29 academy.
It is open to students who are 16 or 17 and entering their senior year of high school. Each student must be in good academic standing and have a valid driver's license. The application deadline is April 20.
Space is limited to 16 students from across the state. The students are sponsored by their local American Legion Post to attend the academy free of charge.
