Students all across the state got a taste of law enforcement this week. The North Dakota Highway Patrol hosted their first student academy. 

Since Monday, these 10 high schoolers were able to learn the basics of becoming a law enforcement officer. This afternoon, they took to the gun range to practice their shooting skills. Each of these kids have an interest in the career – so it’s perfect to see what it would be like to attend the academy in a few years.

“This job isn’t for everybody. People who think they want to do it, it’s great for them to come out here and try it because you don’t want to go through all the work to come here and be a part of this and then find out that a year in, this is not at all what you want to do,” said Oakes High School junior Logan Sell. 

The academy is free to attend, and acceptance is based on an application process.
